Federal Equitable Sharing Agreement & Certification
Sabra Robinson, County Auditor
Discuss and consider approving the Federal Equitable Sharing Agreement and Certification for the Sheriff's Office and the District Attorney's Office.
Nueces County law enforcement agencies and district attorney frequently join forces with 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 reports have been electronically filed to the US Department of Justice by their deadline. The Sheriff's Office reports have now been submitted and the District Attorney's office reports have been completed, authorized, and are in the process of being submitted as of December 10, 2019.
The internal audit department has reviewed these accounts and found them to be accurate when comparing to the general ledger. We recommend approving the equitable sharing agreement and certification for these agencies.
