Today, we made a secondary, adjusted budget proposal to the Riley County Law Enforcement Agency (Law Board) for 2024.
The current 2023 budget is $25,051,492, minus carryover of $51,412 for a realized cost of $25,000,080.
After presenting two initial budget proposals to the Law Board on April 17, the Law Board requested RCPD come back to the board with alternate proposals. After deliberation, RCPD staff presented the initial Proposed Budget 2, and created and presented the adjusted budget proposal below with a reduced Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA), Proposed Budget 3.

Proposed Budget 3
Proposed Budget 3 is a reduction of $399,208 (1.59%) from Proposed Budget 1 and $303,920 (1.21%) from Proposed Budget 2.
“We remain focused on the personnel needs we are faced with,” RCPD Director Brian Peete said. “We are committed to providing professional law enforcement services which depend heavily on attracting and retaining top-tier talent. Continuing to implement the salary survey and providing our employees with a reasonable COLA represents an investment into public safety for Riley County for years to come.”
The Law Board approved Proposed Budget 3 for publication; the final approved budget cannot exceed this amount.
