Meeting Date: 08/15/2019  
Prepared By: Dara Crabtree, City Secretary

AGENDA SUBJECT:
Approval of Central Texas Regional SWAT (CTRS) Interlocal Agreement by and between the City of Cedar Park, City of Georgetown, City of Leander, and City of Pflugerville.
BACKGROUND:
One of the most sacred duties of specially-trained police units is the provision of emergency life-saving response for citizens, especially in highly dangerous and volatile situations.  The standards that these Special Weapons And Tactics (“SWAT”) teams are expected to achieve are high and require a number of important factors in order to be successful.  It is with these high standards in mind that the cities of Cedar Park, Georgetown, and Leander desire to combine resources to form the Central Texas Regional SWAT team.
 
The combining and sharing of resources will allow the regional team to meet the very highest standards of professional excellence for special response teams.  This directly involves the number of qualified personnel assigned to the team, the availability of specialized equipment, and the ability to respond in a highly proficient way to any critical incident which may affect any one of our cities at any time.    The Central Texas Regional SWAT team will provide a critical life-saving response to the citizens of Leander and to the other participating cities, that no individual police department could provide on its own.         

The changes consist of the signature pages being updated along with the addition of City of Pflugerville as a new participating law enforcement agency (reflected throughout ILA) and Item 5(f) Personnel; Direction and Performance Standards has been changed to read as follows: The Tactical Emergency Medical Services ("TEMS") element of CTRS will be comprised of properly certified firefighters under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Sheinberg.  These items are marked in red in the attached ILA for your convenience.
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends the approval of the inter-local agreement without any modifications.
 
PRESENTER:
Greg Minton, Chief of Police
