Sheriff John D. Green announced last week that after “careful thought” he has decided to move forward with his plan to retire early as of December 31, 2010.


Green said his final decision was based on a number of factors. The first was that he had personally assured compliance with all the records request from the City Controller’s Office. Second was his success in initiating the move to retain a highly regarded accounting firm to represent the interest of the Sheriff’s Office.


Green said “Their primary responsibility will be to insure a fair and accurate analysis of our records and that auditors from the controller’s office have a complete understanding of the complex operations of the Sheriff’s Office.”


However, the overriding factor in making his decision is his “complete confidence” that Chief Deputy Barbara Deeley and the staff have the experience and commitment needed to lead the Sheriff’s Office as it continues to respond to the needs of the people of the neighborhoods of this city.


“Barbara is committed to the fight to help families save their homes. She understands the importance of security and timeliness in moving prisoners to and from court rooms and she supports our well established pledge of opening up the Sheriff’s Sale process to all the people of this city,” Green said of Deeley in highlighting some of the many accomplishment of his administration.


On a personal note, Green said he will now move on with obligations he had made to his wife and family four years ago when he entered the Drop Program. And that this time frame allows him to meet deadlines required to fulfill personal and professional commitments.


“In the end, I would like to sincerely express my appreciation for the trust and confidence the citizens of Philadelphia have had in me by electing me to six terms as the Sheriff of the City and County of Philadelphia,” Green said.
