By Staff

Auditors determined the Washington State Patrol followed proper procedures to safeguard public dollars and assets, according to a state audit released June 28.

The audit examined financial statements and federal programs administered by the state patrol. The state team found no problems, and said the agency complied with laws and regulations, as well as procedures established by district officials.

Auditors examined agency documents from July 1, 2009, through June 2010, and found no problems during that time.

In addition to traffic enforcement, the state patrol uses a $492 million budget to maintain criminal records and criminal history databases, conduct criminal investigations, participate in narcotics task forces, provide forensic laboratory services, and deliver fire preparedness and prevention services through the Office of the State Fire Marshal. The agency has about 2,420 employees.
