Richmond Police Commission gathers to discuss operational expenses
The Police Commission for the Village of Richmond discussed financial information relating to operations for 2016 and 2017 during its Feb. 15 meeting.
The commission members held discussions relating to what equipment and supplies would be needed and what associated costs are estimated to be. Costs for automobile maintenance, purchasing and fuel were also considered by the board.
According to the meeting minutes, all of the items that were deliberated on were compiled into a presentation to the village’s Finance Committee in order to support its development of the budget for the 2016 and 2017 fiscal year.
Included in this were cost analyses of anticipated salaries for both full-time and part-time officers and staff, training and areas that are in need of continuous updates. The commission established the salary structure for the department alongside the chain of command. It also held discussions to determine what equipment purchases and upgrades would be required in the future, including camera and taser technology.
During this meeting, notes from the commission’s previous meeting that took place on Jan. 13 were reviewed and, ultimately, approved.
The meeting was adjourned at approximately 3:20 p.m. as a result of a unanimous vote.
