NEWS RELEASE 19-044 - MARCH 21, 2019
Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight today announced the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office 2018 Annual Report is available online.
The publication provides an overview of important local issues including crime statistics, the budget, traffic, and more. The document 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 during Sheriff Knight’s tenth year in office, including red tide clean-up efforts and the utilization of DNA technology to solve a nearly 20-year-old homicide.
“Twenty eighteen was a great year for Sarasota County and for the men and women of the sheriff’s office,” said Sheriff Tom Knight. “Crime continues to decline and our workforce is stronger than ever. We are excited to release this report because it gives us the opportunity to highlight our methods of contemporary policing, a practice that works well for the community we serve.”
