Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight announced today that the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office 2016 Annual Report is now available online.

The publication provides an overview of important local issues such as crime statistics, the budget, strategies for combating opiate addiction, and creating alternatives in the correctional setting. It also reviews the agency's Administrative, Law Enforcement and Courts and Corrections divisions, their varied responsibilities and how each serves the citizens of Sarasota County. The report summarizes key activities throughout 2016, Sheriff Knight's eighth year in office.

"Our innovative and progressive programs and policing methods continue to make Sarasota County a premier place to work and live," said Sheriff Tom Knight. "Being a full-service, 24/7 organization means a lot happens behind the scenes and our annual report gives us an opportunity to show citizens what we are doing to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life in Sarasota County."
