Efficiency and Cost Savings
The department is continually reviewing expenditures and operational practices to find cost savings. Some of the cost savings measures have called for technology enhancements and others are as simple as at home, “turn off the lights when you leave a room”. A few of the recent changes which resulted in real savings are: filling vacancies with retired annuitants, saving on training and benefit costs, acquiring the services of volunteer attorneys, substantial reductions in fuel costs, negotiating lower prices charged on contracts, an automated file tracking system which paid for itself in savings of labor costs and significant reductions in duplication of information gathering and processing by use of electronic transfer of data from other county criminal justice partners.
