Sheriff’s Office Operating Budget




The Sheriff’s Office Finance and Business Services Division is responsible for the preparation of the Sheriff’s Office proposed fiscal year operating budgets, both in the Restricted and Unrestricted capacity, and continually monitors operating expenditures and revenues, as well as, capital project expenditures.


Budget Fiscal Year:  Clackamas County’s Fiscal year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30.


Budget Process: Each year, the Clackamas County Budget Committee holds public meetings and approves the entire County budget for all elected officials and departments. The Clackamas County Budget Committee is comprised of the five Clackamas County Commissioners and five members of the public. Following budget approval by the Clackamas County Budget Committee, the Board of County Commissioners votes to adopt the budget in June. 


Restricted Funds: Funds that are allocated or awarded to a public entity for a specific purpose and cannot be legally used to pay for expenses other than their original intent. This includes funding such as levies, special districts, and grants.


Unrestricted Funds: Funds that are allocated to a public entity to use for expenses including payroll costs, business needs, and training. Unrestricted funds include allocated County General Fund Support to the entity.


Sheriff’s Office FY 2023-2024 Budget:  The County Administrator’s FY 2023-2024 Budget for the Sheriff’s Office was approved by the Clackamas County Budget Committee and was formally adopted by the Board of County Commissioners on June 22, 2023.


Sheriff’s Office Chart of Accounts: The Sheriff’s Office Chart of Accounts is a financial, organizational tool that provides an index of every account used. The structure of the Sheriff’s Office Chart of Accounts is detailed and allows for the tracking of revenue and expenses at the program, service, and project levels. The Sheriff’s Office Chart of Accounts was developed and is maintained in conjunction with County Finance and is reviewed and approved annually during the Budget Process.
