How does the RCPD manage costs?

The RCPD manages costs by:

  • Tying major expenditures to our strategic plan
  • Utilizing cost coding and contract tracking software
  • Recommending new positions that can be justified in the strategic plan
  • Monitoring non-personnel expenditures throughout the year to ensure we are not becoming reliant upon unused personnel funds for those expenditures
  • Tracking overtime throughout the year and holding ourselves in an effort to operate within our budget. Emergent public safety needs that often include ensuring officer safety are never ignored
  • Presenting large end-of-year purchase requests using unexpended personnel funds to the law board in a public meeting.
