Financial Services is responsible for ensuring the integrity of the financial management system and all financial transactions made by the Department. Staff is responsible for the timely and accurate recording of revenues and expenditures.
This is accomplished by three main functional areas:
PPayroll is responsible for recording of expenses associated with the Department’s salaries and related deductions such as taxes, garnishments, and employee benefits. Accounts Payable is responsible for the recording of expenses associated with the Department’s operations other than salaries. Accounts Receivable is responsible for the recording of the Department’s revenue, receivables, and deposits. All of the aforementioned areas are responsible for assisting the field units as needed. Also, each area is responsible for the distribution or receipt of cash associated with its related transactions.
Financial Services also oversees operations of the Consolidated Banking Unit (CBU). The CBU is responsible for the proper handling of Offender, Probation, and Parole funds through the use of two centralized accounts:
The Offender Trust account is used to maintain funds for incarcerated offenders for use in the local commissary or for departmentally pre-approved miscellaneous purchases. The Probation/Parole Trust account is used to manage receipts and disbursements of court ordered fines, fees, and restitution for probationers and parolees.
