Risk Management, under the direction of the City Attorney, oversees the prevention of injuries to City employees and losses or damages to City assets along with control of incurred losses. The Risk Management Division purchases insurance to protect against catastrophic losses and to provide necessary protection of City assets. This division actively works with all City departments to prevent losses from occurring by determining hazards and liabilities. By implementing safety and risk techniques, losses to the City are minimized in frequency and severity. All claims and losses are investigated and managed by the Risk Management Division.
