Fiscal Year Information

Reports

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s 5th-Month Budget Status Report (BSR), which is a requirement of the County Board of Supervisors and the Chief Executive Officer.

LASD’s 5th-Month BSR is based on expenditures from the months of July, 2023, through November, 2023, and projects a modest deficit of $36.7 million through the fiscal year ending June 30, 2024.

The deficit is due primarily to over-expenditures in the budget categories of Salary and Employee Benefits ($55.7m) and Services and Supplies ($26.2m).  This combined over-expenditure of $81.9m is partially offset by a) savings in Capital Assets ($6.1m) and Other Charges ($6.3m); b) prior-year savings/adjustments ($16.2m), and c) over-realization of Revenue ($16.6m).  As a result, the Department’s Estimated Year-End Fund balance nets out to a deficit of $36.7m at this point in the fiscal year.

As the fiscal year progresses, the Department is exploring a multitude of alternatives to reduce its projected deficit including, but not limited to, efforts to minimize overtime expenditures by reducing vacancies and limiting the growth of law enforcement services.
