Crime Control and Prevention District
About the Crime Control and Prevention District
The Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD) is authorized by Section 363 of the Texas Local Government Code and is created and renewed by a vote of Jersey Village citizens. The citizens of Jersey Village first voted to establish CCPD in 1998 for a five-year period. The District was renewed in 2003 for a ten-year period and again in 2013 for a ten-year period.
Board of Directors
CCPD activities are monitored and evaluated by seven board members. These board members include six Council Members and one civilian member. Any requested expenditure must be presented to the Board for approval at public meetings prior to use of CCPD funds.
CCPD funding comes from a ½ cent sales and use tax. The revenue generated by this ½ cent tax has allowed the Jersey Village Police Department to improve the efficiency and the level of service provided to our citizens. Funds are used for items such as:
Each year, revenue and necessary expenses are thoroughly evaluated and a proposed budget is created. Since CCPD funds are needed in so many areas of police operations, a thorough evaluation is necessary to ensure funds are allocated where most needed. The proposed budget then goes before CCPD Board of Directors for approval.
CCPD's approved budget for the 2011-2012 fiscal year was $1,771,804. This amount includes projected sales tax revenue as well as all departmental costs.
The approved budget amount for the 2012-2013 fiscal year is $1,889,712, which includes a projected increase in sales tax revenue and all departmental costs.
The CCPD has consistently contributed to the quality of life in Jersey Village thru enhanced police service. Without issue the CCPD has historically provided the ability for specific task programming and essential tools to meet citizen needs. For more information about program details, visit our FAQ page.
