Business & Finance

The Business and Finance Administration offices within Police Headquarters are charged with the tracking and management of the RCIPS annual budget, inclusive of all procurement, and the processing of all invoices, payments, and payroll across the organization.

Since it is charged with executing all of the financial transactions required across a large and diverse organization, Finance staff is required to work efficiently while also ensuring that all compliance requirements are strictly met.  This challenge is similar for the execution of procurement, which is another major and critical duty within this portfolio, overseen by the Business Office. The procurement of police equipment can often be time-sensitive, but it also must adhere to guidelines and best practices.

The Finance Office consists of a Financial Controller and three Accounts Officers, while the overall Business and Finance portfolio is headed by a Business Manager. The Business Manager provides advice and makes recommendations to the Commissioners on Human Resources, Business Administration and Financial matters.  The Business Manager is also responsible for the RCIPS annual budget of $40.4 million and has authority to sign relevant documents as it relates to the payment of procurement of goods and services.  

Thanks to the hard work of staff in these offices, the 2016-2017 budget was duly executed, with the RCIPS completing the 18-month 2016-2017 cycle slightly under budget, primarily due to slightly lower personnel costs.  Generally, personnel costs account for 80% of annual budget expenditures for the RCIPS, year on year.

Fleet and Stores

Any police service requires substantial equipment and a large and varied fleet of vehicles to function effectively in fulfilling policing duties and emergency response.  The RCIPS has 111 police vehicles, including larger SUVs and trucks, sedans and motorcycles.  The vehicles in the fleet vary according to their purposes. Some are marked as police vehicles, in terms of being painted white with the RCIPS logo and colors, whereas others are unmarked vehicles for use by detectives and during police operations.  The interior of all marked police vehicles are also adapted for police use and prisoner transfers.

The procurement, modification and maintenance of such a large vehicle fleet are complex tasks, requiring both organization and technical skill.   

The RCIPS Stores acts as the main dispensary within the organization for all police equipment, from uniforms to ballistic vests to office supplies.  Maintaining proper levels of inventory and tracking this inventory so that it is available when needed is critical to the functioning of the overall Service.  In 2017 new software was introduced to upgrade police inventory management, resulting in far greater control and accuracy in the tracking of all police equipment across the three islands.

Fleet and Stores are staffed and managed by an industrious team of civilian staff.

Information Technology

Smoothly functioning computer systems and hardware are the foundation of modern police work in any jurisdiction. For the RCIPS, these systems and hardware must be maintained and upgraded across eleven police properties on three islands.  In 2017 the mammoth tasks of upgrading outdated computer operating software as well as replacing outdated computers were undertaken.  Throughout the course of the year, all outdated operating software was upgraded and one hundred fifty computers were successfully replaced.  Our conscientious IT staff executed this renewal of our computer systems, which has contributed greatly to the smoother functioning of the overall Service.
