The Sheriff's Office operations are dependent upon both fees from services and a small portion of financial assistance from Taylor County Fiscal Court.
Unlike most law enforcement agencies in Kentucky, the Sheriff’s Office possesses more responsibilities. The primary role is to serve the courts and the secondary role is law enforcement. Other duties include:
All of these sources generate vital revenue.
Sheriff's Office cannot carry over funds from one year to the next. All excess fees are surrendered over to Fiscal Court with each year's end. Every new year begins with a zero balance. It is necessary for the Sheriff’s Office to borrow $200,000 from the Kentucky State Treasurer on a yearly basis. The loan, along with the fees from services, assures the Sheriff's Office operational needs are met.
The Sheriff has an audit conducted each year by the State Auditor's office. The audits completed include both fee and tax accounts. The County Settlement's audit is executed by a private auditor. All audits from 2011 to the present year have been favorable.
