The words “he, his, him,” which may appear in this policy, are used generically for clarity and ease of reading. These terms are not meant to imply gender and relate to all employees of the Department.

Effective administrative practices ensure the efficient flow information within the Department; assisting management in making decisions that are based on the best available information. A good administrative reporting system includes the flow of information between individuals, units, sections, divisions, and the Office of the Chief of Police. This system includes reports of the law enforcement function, such as incidents, arrests, traffic crashes, and reports relating to personnel activities and needs. The administrative reporting system will be utilized for, but not limited to, determining personnel allocation and needs, resource needs, predicting workloads, and preparing budgets.
