ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - A financial audit of the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office suggests that “management should adhere” to policies regarding credit card policies and purchasing.

The office says the finding was prompted by an “isolated incident” with an employee who didn’t follow protocol.

The Town Talk reports (https://townta.lk/1vV78dg ) the material weakness finding was the only finding listed in the audit released Monday from Kolder, Champagne, Slaven and Company, LLC, of Alexandria.

A material weakness means that internal controls that are in place to prevent financial irregularities are not effective. The lack of internal controls could lead to misstatements in financial statements.
