Audit for Sheriff’s Evidence Room?

The Chicago Sun-Times had an article Friday about the Inspector General of Chicago having performed an audit on the evidence operation of the Chicago Police Department.

The headline reads, “Inspector: Police evidence controls lacking.”

The seven-month audit by Joe Ferguson found the Police Department employees could not find 2.8% of the sample chosen.

With former McHenry County Sheriff’s Sgt. Greg Pyle having been arrested for crimes unrelated to his evidence room supervision duties, the thought crossed my mind that an audit might be appropriate.

For the same reasons the audit was conducted in Cook County.

Just to see how secure that portion of the Sheriff’s Department is.
