California State Auditor's Assessment of 6-Month Status: Partially Implemented
Fresno has begun implementing this recommendation. Because it is in the process of writing an Audit Plan that will be completed by February 2021--as noted in its response to another recommendation (#13), we consider this recommendation partially implemented until that Audit Plan is completed and incorporates this process.
60-Day Agency Response
The Fresno Police Department has every intention on complying with the audit recommendations; however, this crisis has delayed us. Prior to COVID-19, we had already restructured our sharing MOU and were in the process of working on some of the other items due in April; however, this pandemic has caused us to shift our resources.
- Estimated Completion Date: 02/28/2021
- Response Date: April 2020
California State Auditor's Assessment of 60-Day Status: Pending
We acknowledge the difficulty of the current situation with COVID-19. We look forward to the department's future status reports.
