Body

BACKGROUND & HISTORY:

The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control offered grant funding to local law enforcement agencies for Fiscal Year 2022 in January 2021 for the Alcohol Policing Partnership Program.  The mission of the Alcohol Policing Partnership Program is to assist local law enforcement agencies in developing a practical, effective, comprehensive, and strategic approach to eliminating crime and public nuisance problems associated with problem alcoholic beverage outlets. The Police Department has successfully applied for funding for this grant program and was notified in June 2021 that the grant application was approved.  The grant agreement was received for approval on August 4, 2021.  The grant utilizes Alcohol Beverage Control enforcement activities to help increase public safety and address any quality-of-life problems related to alcohol control for the surrounding community.

 

ANALYSIS:

This grant will address Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) priorities, consisting of: Shoulder Tap operations, where a minor decoy asks an adult to purchase alcohol for him or her, to deter adults from purchasing alcohol for minors; Minor Decoy operations, where minor volunteers attempt to buy alcohol at retail outlets; undercover operations; saturation patrols; and other alcohol related projects and dealing with their associated alcohol problems within the City limits.

 

The Corona Police Department ABC liaison officer will work with the local ABC liaison agent to provide training for patrol officers, educational and preventive programs, and coordinate all other designated projects with ABC inspections and operations.

 

The performance period for the grant will be July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022.   The one-time award will reimburse the City of Corona for designated personnel expenditures and other related supplies.

 

All program operations will be conducted on an overtime basis and will supplement police crime prevention activities.

 

The City Attorney has reviewed and approved as to form the proposed Grant Agreement.

 

FINANCIAL IMPACT:

Approval of the recommended actions will result in an appropriation and estimated revenue increase of $50,142 in the General Fund in Fiscal Year 2022.  This grant has no cost share matching requirements.  The one-time grant award will reimburse the General Fund expenditures as follows:

 

Police Staffing Expense                                                                                               $ 48,042

Operating Expense                                                                                           500

Equipment                                                                                                    1,600

Project Total                                                                                                                            $ 50,142

ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS:

This action is exempt pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of the Guidelines for the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), which states that a project is exempt from CEQA if the activity is covered by the common sense exemption that CEQA applies only to projects that have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. Where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA. This action of directed enforcement is minimal and there is no possibility this will have a significant effect on the environment. Therefore, no environmental analysis is required.
