1) Accepting an award in the amount of $35,755 from the State Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control for the Grant Assistance Program; and
2) Authorizing the Sheriff, the Chief Fiscal Officer, and the Special Enforcement Detail Sergeant to execute on behalf of El Dorado County contracts, extensions, amendment and subsequent contracts with the Alcoholic Beverage Control for the Grant Assistance Program.  The term of this grant is from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015.
 
FUNDING:  State of California Alcoholic Beverage Control Grant Assistance Program Grant.
Body
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
No Change to Net County Cost. Grant Assistance Program (GAP) grant will reimburse the Sheriff's Office (SO) for program costs.  Funding will be included in the FY 2014-15 Addenda request.
 
Background
The SO applied and was awarded a grant on May 16, 2014 in the amount of $35,755 by the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC).  The goal in submitting the grant application was to seek funding for a program to reduce the availability of alcohol to underage persons, and identify minors who purchase, use or borrow false forms of identification for the purposes of obtaining alcohol or entering licensed alcohol premises through enforcement, education and training strategies for licensed premises and SO staff.
 
The grant contract that will have to be signed with the ABC prior to completing the award process requires a Board Resolution and authority from the Board for staff to sign the grant documents.
 
The funds expended for the GAP will cover the costs for: Operation Trapdoor enforcement operations to identify fraudulent, and/or fake identification cards; training classes for deputies to identify fraudulent ID cards; conducting minor decoy, and shoulder tap operations; partnering with the cities of South Lake Tahoe and Placerville law enforcement to conduct safety patrol operations, partnering with the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Department to exchange information, assist in reported alcohol related problems, and promote safe non-alcoholic events with the local high schools and community colleges.  These grant funds will not supplement, but enhance existing programs and efforts by the Sheriff's Office to address the problems related to minors' use of alcohol.
 
Reason for Recommendation
Adoption of this Resolution will allow the SO to continue to provide enforcement of ABC laws in the County.
 
Clerk of the Board Follow Up Actions
Signed Resolution will be forwarded to the ABC, and grant contracts will be signed by authorized SO staff upon review by County Counsel.
