Crime District

FY 2021-2022 Annual Budget

Description

The Citizens of White Settlement voted on January 20, 1996, to create a White Settlement Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD) by the adoption of local sales and use tax at a rate of one-half of one percent through Resolution No. 608-96. The tax was readopted in May 2010 through Resolution No.931-10 for an additional twenty-year period beginning January 2011. In accordance with Local Government Code Chapter 363, the district may finance all the costs of a crime control and crime prevention program, including the costs for personnel, administration, expansion, enhancement, and capital expenditures. The programs include police and law enforcement related programs; community-related crime prevention strategies; specific treatment and prevention programs, court and prosecution services; additional jails, jailers, guards, and other necessary staff. This will give the City leaders and police administrators an opportunity to make long-range plans that will ensure our community that their needs will be met.


The Crime Prevention and Control District is an entity governed by a seven-member board approved by the City Council. For financial reporting purposes, the entity is reported as a component unit and as a part of the City’s operations. The District pays the City five percent (5%) of the gross crime tax receipts for administrative and other services in monthly installments.
