Submitted For: Anthony Maynard

SUBJECT:
Approval to submit and accept a grant from the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence for funding in an amount not to exceed $100,000 by the Police Department.
SUMMARY:

The Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV) has released an RFP that allows law enforcement agencies to request funding to establish a domestic violence program, or in the case of the Fort Pierce Police Department, continue and already established InVEST collaboration. The InVEST program supports law enforcement efforts in preventing or reducing crimes related to domestic violence.

 

The Police Department intends to use this funding to cover the salary and benefits of the officer assigned to InVEST, as well as provide the necessary training, travel, and related office equipment.

RECOMMENDATION:
The recommendation is that this request be approved in order to maintaining the continuity of the InVEST program, which has been a part of the FPPD for several years.
ALTERNATIVES:
The alternative is for this request to be denied; resulting in the end of the FPPD-InVEST partnership.  The FPPD would then await Commission directives on an alternate approach to domestic violence programming.

Deputy Chief Frank Amandro, Support Services Bureau or
Lieutenant Robert Ridle, Support Servives
