Award Contract for Police Management Advisory Services
1. Award a contract to Mark S. Yokoyama Consulting for police management advisory services for an amount not to exceed $50,000; and

2. Approve a $50,000 appropriation transfer in the General Fund Police budget from personnel to contract services.
While the city recruits its next Chief of Police, the two Captains are sharing acting Police Chief duties. It is recommended the City Council approve an agreement to provide the Captains and department management team additional resources to ensure the department's ongoing success. Mark Yokoyama is a retired Police Chief and City Manager who served as Cypress' Police Chief from 2008 to 2011 and is currently the Principal Consultant for Mark S. Yokoyama Consulting. Mr. Yokoyama will provide day-to-day operational and management support for the management team, attend management team meetings as an advisor and support the transition to the next Police Chief. Mr. Yokoyama's hourly rate is $90 and it is anticipated he will provide 20 hours of service per week. The maximum contract amount of $50,000 allows for Mr. Yokoyama to support the department through March 2021, shortly after the anticipated start date for the next Police Chief.
Sufficient salary savings in the General Fund, due to the Chief of Police vacancy, are available in the FY 2020-21 budget to provide for the recommended transfer.
None required.
