Finance Division

The Finance Division is under the direction of the Sheriff and is managed by the Finance Director. Two Finance Assistants and a Staff Accountant work under the Finance Director.

The Finance Division is responsible for the development, implementation, maintenance and control of the Sheriff's Office budget. The budgets are based upon allocations approved through the Sumter County Board of County Commissioners and Administrative processes. Budgets are made up of funds received through the tax base of Sumter County and when available, grant funds from several Federal and State programs. Functions include budgeting and analysis, audit review of accounts, purchasing approval of goods and services, control of expenditures and payments, agency payroll for over 270 employees and other data entry functions.

In addition, this division is responsible for all grant requests and grant reporting requirements, deposit of revenue from various sources and other general accounting functions as required.

The Finance Department has had five consecutive audits by independent auditors with "no findings" which is indicative of superlative work by the department.
