Auditors are set to address the Sumter County Commissioner next week following a forensic audit of the sheriff's office.

 An internal audit started more than two years ago.  A third party firm began the forensic audit in December.
     
County officials say the audit is to ensure that the best practices are being used to manage public money.

"Sometimes government offices tend to work in silos. We hope to improve the communication all the way through the processes of local government here in Sumter County," said Sumter County Administrator Bill Twomey.

The sheriff says his office has cooperated fully with auditors since December. The meeting Tuesday night is open to the public.
