Administrative Coordinator

The Position of Administrative Coordinator is charged primarily with three tasks:

  • Budget
  • Equipment/Supplies
  • Personnel

Personnel

The Administrative Coordinator, as established by the Rules and Regulations of the Canton Police Department, maintains the records of all officers, including but not limited to:

  • Absenteeism
  • Background checks
  • City-issued equipment
  • Commendations
  • Disciplinary action
  • Driving records
  • Injuries
  • Job-related schooling

Budget

In addition to personnel, another responsibility is developing a budget and then aiding the Chief of Police in staying within that budget, while still allowing him the ability to operate the department in as efficient a manner possible.

Equipment / Supplies

The third task, that of equipment/supplies, obviously affects the budget and the funding of the Police Department. All purchasing of items for the department will go through his office. The Administrative Coordinator has the responsibility to ensure that any and all supplies necessary for that performance are readily at hand.
