The Police Administrative Services and Budget Division provides a wide range of fiscal and support services to more than 600 sworn and professional staff. The division is also responsible for the Department’s equipment, supplies, and facilities. The Police Administrative Services and Budget Division consists of three sections that provide these support services, including Fiscal and Budget, Central Distribution Center, and Building and Facility. In addition, the division provides general administrative support, manages the Police Department’s Request for Council Action (RFCA) process, and manages the Department’s agreement tracking and renewal process.
Fiscal and Budget
The Fiscal Section provides the fiscal support necessary to operate a police department. Fiscal staff strives to provide the highest quality customer service in all fiscal related matters. The Fiscal Section performs all payroll, accounting, budget, and purchasing related activities for the Police Department. This includes management of the General Fund budget, various grants, and the Department’s special revenue funds.
Central Distribution Center (CDC)
The Central distribution Center (CDC) provides equipment and logistical support to all Police Department operations. CDC oversees the Department’s 228 City-owned vehicles and 42 lease vehicles, and coordinates the maintenance, repair and replacement of all Department vehicles. In addition, CDC is responsible for purchasing, receiving and issuance of all Department equipment including guns, vests, uniforms, and all other supplies and equipment. CDC also maintains an inventory of all equipment issued to employees.
Building and Facility
The Building and Facility Section is responsible for the Department’s facilities, which includes the 236,300 square foot Police Admin Building and 168,400 square foot Jail Facility. The Police Administrative Building and Jail Facility are conjoined by a large Community Room available for public meetings. These facilities are now over 20 years old. The flexible, functional, and open design continue to contribute towards operational efficiencies and the Police Department’s recruitment efforts. The City’s Building and Maintenance Division provides the technical building staff needed to maintain the Department’s complex facilities.
