Maricopa Co. Seeks Jail Fund Audit

How the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office spends money meant for jail improvements could become a matter for state auditors. The sheriff's office spent hundreds of thousands of those dollars on parties and fine hotel accommodations during out-of-state travel, according to a newspaper investigation. The state collects and distributes millions of dollars every year from court fees so the 15 county sheriffs can improve their jails.County Manager David Smith said officials are concerned that sheriff's officials are not following proper procurement rules and other business practices.
