The Budget and Finance Division provides administrative support and is responsible for the fiscal operation of the Police Department under four key components:
Budget Management – The Division is tasked with developing the annual budget, tracking annual expenses and revenue, reviewing the Fee Schedule on an annual basis, and providing financial reports to the Command staff. An audit function has been established to ensure timely deposit of cash receipts department-wide.
Payroll - The Division processes bi-weekly payroll for over 280 permanent and part-time employees and ensures timely updates to scheduling, hiring and promotional information.
Purchasing - The purchasing function includes initiating purchase orders or contracts, administering vendor contracts and agreements, and processing invoice payments for all material and service needs of the Department.
Grants Management - In addition to managing all department wide funds, the Division oversees numerous Federal and State grants as well as managing special revenue for short-term projects. This process includes reviewing solicitations for available funding, preparing and submitting grant applications, administering existing grant programs, submitting regular State and Federal grant reports, preparation for grant audits and disposition of grant equipment. These grants are crucial in supporting some critical Strategic Plan objectives relative to funding sworn and civilian positions, purchasing equipment, providing additional training, improving technology and enhancing the Department’s community policing efforts.
