Adopt a Resolution entitled: A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS ALLOCATING AND APPROPRIATING THE SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDING PROVIDED UNDER ASSEMBLY BILL NO. 3229 FOR ALLOCATION YEAR 2010/2011. BACKGROUND: On July 10, 1996, Assembly Bill NO. 3229 was enacted by the State of California establishing the Citizen's Option for Public Safety (COPS) program and initially provided $100,000,000 to counties and cities within the state for the purpose of supplemental law enforcement. Twenty-five percent of the original amount was allocated to counties for jails and criminal prosecution, and the remaining seventy-five percent was allocated to counties and cities based on population. The first two years of COPS funding was used to establish the traffic division and to purchase equipment for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. Due to the rising costs of services, the City has used the funds to offset the General Fund for the cost of a deputy and a marked patrol unit in the traffic division, the reserve patrol vehicle, the annual maintenance of the police radio in the Citizen Patrol vehicle, and the purchase of cell phones. �j AGENDA DATE: December 14, 2010 PAGE 2 SUBJECT: ASSEMBLY BILL NO. 3229 CITIZEN'S OPTION FOR PUBLIC SAFETY (COPS) FUNDING FOR FISCAL YEAR 2010/2011 The cost for the annual maintenance of the radio in the Citizen Patrol vehicle, the reserve patrol vehicle and the cellular service charges have since been reflected in the Public Safety Budget. This year, the City will receive $100,000, a decrease of$21,958 from the previous year. The COPS allocation will partially offset the cost of one traffic division deputy. Approval of this item will expedite the allocation of funds under Assembly Bill No. 3229. REVIEWED BY: This item has been reviewed by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and the Finance Director. FISCAL IMPACT: There is no impact to the General Fund.
