Another audit is underway for the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office. According to State Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones, the audit is routine in nature due to an official leaving the office. Basically, the audit takes inventory and checks account balances. Sheriff John Whetsel retired from office on March 1. He won re-election in a close race in November.
It was last year when an audit revealed the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office did not pay certain medical expenses when it had the money among other issues. It caused a firestorm during the election. However, as history now records, Whetsel squeezed out a victory over his Republican opponent, Mike Christian.
The date for the release of the new audit has not been revealed yet.
