Department: County Auditor  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approving the FY 2012-2013 Federal Equitable Sharing Agreements & Certifications for the District Attorney, Constable Precinct No. 3, and Constable Precinct No. 5; and authorize the County Judge to sign.
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 maiantained 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 11/30/2012.
DISCUSSION
The internal audit department has reviewed these accounts and found the information accurate without exceptions.  We recommend approving the equitable sharing agreements and certifications for the District Attorney, Constable 3, and Constable 5.
