Tennessee DA's get good audit report
The Tennessee District Attorneys General and Judicial District Drug Task Forces achieved a remarkable financial operation report as shown in the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury’s recently released annual Review of Funds report. The most notable achievement was in the administrative practices of Judicial District Drug Task Forces. In this audit there was not one single audit finding by the State Auditors in any Judicial District Drug Task Force or District Attorneys General Office across the State. "It is quite an accomplishment to have no findings across all 31 Judicial Districts,” Tennessee Comptroller Justin P. Wilson said. “The District Attorneys General Conference and each Drug Task Force deserves credit for continually improving operations and providing training on these important issues." “Prosecutors are keepers of public trust,” said District Attorney General James B. Dunn, of the 4th Judicial District, which covers Cocke, Jefferson, Sevier and Grainger counties. “A key indicator of how we respect that trust is how we use public funds. This report shows our efforts and ongoing training events are paying off.” Judicial District Drug Task Forces operate in 26 of the 31 judicial districts. Auditors listed no findings or recommendations for administrative improvement on the report. Specifically, no findings were listed for the 4th Judicial District. The operations of the offices of the District Attorneys General and the Judicial District Drug Task Forces are audited annually by the Comptroller’s Office. “This year’s flawless audit, coupled with a string of good audits in recent years, tells us that the General Assembly, the Drug Task Forces and the District Attorneys General have found a Tennessee solution to address Tennessee problems. Their efforts ensure that drug dealers are more likely to pay for their crimes by losing their ill-gotten gains,” said James B. Dunn, District Attorney General for the 4th Judicial District.
