“Now that we have collected the cash, what do we do with it?
How is cash going to be secured?
Cash must be stored in a safe or other secure place until it is deposited.

The safe must always be closed. No exceptions!

It is very important to change the combination when someone who knew the combination leaves the department. Contact Jamie in Food Stores to change your combination.
WHILE in Use…
If making change is necessary, each person collecting cash should have a cash box or drawer that no one else uses.

When not in Use…
Secure the cash box in a locked drawer and limit access.

How To Detect Counterfeit Money
The public has a role in maintaining the integrity of U.S. currency. You can help guard against the threat from counterfeiters by becoming more familiar with United States currency.

Look at the money you receive. Compare a suspect note with a genuine note of the same denomination and series, paying attention to the quality of printing and paper characteristics. Look for differences, not similarities.
If You Receive a Counterfeit
Do not return it to the passer.
Delay the passer if possible.
Observe the passer's description, as well as that of any companions, and the license plate numbers of any vehicles used.
Contact your ISU Police Officer. The number for ISU Police 24-hour dispatch center is: 515-294-4428 or 911 for an emergency.
Write your initials and the date in the white border areas of the suspect note.
Limit the handling of the note. Carefully place it in a protective covering, such as an envelope.
Surrender the note or coin only to a properly identified ISU Police Officer.
Example of a Raised Note
Establish an effective internal control system.
Delegate responsibility for cash handling, while maintaining proper segregation of duties.
Require that staff who handle cash be properly trained and that they follow all of the University’s cash handling policies and procedures.
Review reconciliation on a regular basis, then sign & date documentation review.
