Agenda Item Text:
Approve Grant Agreement HT-21-2912 with the Southwest Border Arizona Region High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) for the Sheriff's Office, to participate in the Southern Arizona Major Investigative Team (SAMIT) in the amount of $72,167 for salaries, partial fringe benefits (ERE), services, and supplies, effective January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2022.
The Sheriff's Office has a contract (recurring) for funding of personnel by the Southwest Border Arizona Region High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), Southern Arizona Major Investigative Team (SAMIT). This grant is a funding source the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office has applied for, and has been approved to utilize as a source of funding for salaries, partial fringe benefits (ERE), and to purchase supplies for one deputy assigned to work in the HIDTA drug task force. This task force works under the guidance of a local Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Office. Their mission is to combat illegal drug use, sales, and smuggling occurring within the communities of Cochise County.
Department's Next Steps (if approved):
If approved, the Sheriff’s Office will continue to assign deputies to the task force and continue to fight the infiltration of illegal drugs into our communities in Cochise County
Impact of NOT Approving/Alternatives:
If not approved, it will severely impact the Sheriff’s Office operations in the fight against illegal drug use, sales, and smuggling. Further, not participating in this task force will reduce CCSO manpower by one deputy. A position that the CCSO would not be able to fund without this grant.
To BOS Staff: Document Disposition/Follow-Up:
Please return contract(s) with a signed copy of the Board of Supervisors approved agenda item or resolution listing the grant agreement.
