Recommended action                     

That the City Council:

Body

ANALYSIS:

The HSGP-SHSP Grant through the California Office of Emergency Services, or Cal OES, in cooperation with the Riverside County Operational Area has provided reimbursement grant funding assistance to the City of Corona.  This year’s grant award has been divided in to two tiers based on the availability of funding.  Tier 1 funding was already accepted and appropriated by the City Council on March 20, 2019.  The Police Department has now been awarded tier 2 funding.  The award letter is the amount of the tier 1 funding of $5,500, and the tier 2 funding of $26,900 combined, for a total of $32,400.  The grant performance period is September 1, 2018 - May 31, 2020.

 

The Police Department has been approved to use the grant funding for surveillance equipment and items related to the Public Safety Enterprise Communication (PSEC) Radio Interoperability Capital Improvement Project for the purchase of a Harris Unity Radio. This radio to be purchased, is a quad-band portable radio, which offers communication in all public safety bands and supports our radio interoperability strategic plan goals. It is the same radio the Police Department has been converting to over the last several years. This radio will be utilized by our tactical response dispatchers in tactical incidents.

 

COMMITTEE ACTION:

Not applicable.

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

This item supports the City Strategic Plan goal to Promote Public Safety: Protect our Residents and Businesses (b) ensure adequate funding for facilities and equipment needed to support timely delivery of police and fire services to our community.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

Approval of the recommended actions will result in a budget appropriation and estimated revenue increase of $26,900 in the Reimbursement Grants Fund.  This grant has no cost share or matching requirements.
