BRIEF: Jackson County sheriff's inventory coming to an end, some vehicles to be sold or donated [The Sun Herald :: ]
(Sun Herald (Biloxi, MS) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) March 22--Britt reported that the sheriff's department was "about 80 percent completed with an inventory of about 4,000 items, including vehicles, firearms, boats, ATVs and other assets.
"We originally thought the inventory would be completed by the end of February, but when you get into accounting for this many items, it just takes time," Britt said. "Right now, we are more concerned with the accuracy of the inventory over the speed of the process."
Several vehicles parked behind the department's motor pool will eventually be auctioned or donated, said department spokeswoman Cherie Ward.
Sheriff's deputies are working with the county's inventory control manager in conducting the inventory.
Each individual employee has been inventoried and the large, heavy-duty equipment is completed, Britt said.
The department's in-house office equipment, such as computers, printer, scanners and other assets as well as the items located at the Narcotics Division are the last items slated to be inventoried. In-house office equipment has traditionally been recorded and kept on the county's ledger.
