The Police Budget and Procurement Officer reports directly to the Chief of Police and serves as the Department liaison to the City's Finance Department. All matters related to fiscal, budgeting and procurement are referred to the Police Budget and Procurement Officer. This includes assisting in the development of the Police Department budget, maintaining the fund accounting for each division and procuring the supplies, uniforms, and equipment necessary for the civilian staff and officers.
