Captain Hank Dial
The Administrative Bureau is responsible for payroll, purchasing, recruiting, training, grants, vehicle maintenance, and community and neighborhood programs. The Records Division is responsible for reports, N.C.I.C. validations and municipal court. The Property and Evidence Section, which also falls under the command of the Administrative Bureau, is responsible for the intake, storage, security and expungement of all property and physical evidence.
One aspect of the bureau that has undergone a massive transition is the Evidence Property Storage Facility. During an extensive bin audit of the property room, several thousand items were disposed, including the destruction of 405 firearms. Additionally, a modern method of tracking and maintaining monetary evidence has been implemented. This is all being done as a precursor to implementing a bar code evidence management system in our property room.
The purchasing process for our department has been completely reorganized and modernized. A new system for filing purchases by vendor has been implemented. Additionally, the departmental budget, including all related documents, has been completely computerized. Now, as expenditures change, the changes are automatically carried over to budget documents, providing highly accurate and instantaneous information for budgeting purposes and improved budgetary oversight.
