Right after I posted Everything Has A Cost, I received an email alert that linked to an article by Barry Reynolds posted to PoliceOne.com titled 5 simple rules for managing your police agency’s budget .
Barry leads the article by remarking:
Most police executives enjoy the annual budget process about as much as they enjoy a double root canal…
I would suggest that as I offered in The Police Business Unit, we are well out of our element when it comes to the money and budgeting business, and would much rather be ‘the real police’. Maybe this non-police work is better suited for an experienced business unit in the police department.
Take a few minutes to read Barry’s article; he offers terrific advice that will take some of the stress and frustration out of the budgeting process.
