The Budget and Grant Department is responsible for managing all aspects of the PD’s budget as well as searching for grant funding to supplement and enhance operations. The Police Department budget is over $16 million dollars and covers Police Operations, Code Enforcement, and Animal Control. The budget is made of General Funds, Measure DD funds, as well as CSA 86 monies. Grants are in place to support the purchases of specialty items, such as motorcycles, and emergency equipment, or to assist with services like DUI checkpoints, and child seat safety checks.
The Department works closely with City Hall staff to ensure proper allocation of funds during the annual and mid-year budget process, grant management and recording deadlines, and timely payment of invoices. The staff get continual training on government budget processes, trends, and grant opportunities and requirements. The Budget and Grant Department can be reached at 951-723-1513, or firstname.lastname@example.org Monday – Friday 6:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. I can answer inquiries regarding invoices, budget, or grant award, submission, and reporting.
