Federal Equitable Sharing Agreements
Submitted For: Dale Atchley Submitted By: Telma Lopez, County Auditor
Department: County Auditor  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approving the Federal Equitable Sharing Agreement & Certification for Nueces County District Attorney, Constable Precinct 3, Constable Precinct 5, and Nueces County Sheriff Department.
BACKGROUND
Nueces County law enforcement agencies and district attorney frequently join forces with the federal agencies to investigate drug trafficking. When these investigations lead to seizure of assets, the local agencies can partake in the distribution of any assets only if there is an equitable sharing agreement and annual certifications filed. Our local law enforcement agencies have maintained equitable sharing agreements with the federal government for many years and request approval to continue. These are electronically filed to the US Department of Justice and are due 11/30/2014.
DISCUSSION
The internal audit department has reviewed these accounts and found the information accurate with one exception on how Sheriff Department was allocation of interest between funding sources.  The exception has been addressed.  We recommend approving the equitable sharing agreement and certification for these agencies.
