Body
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost: No Net County Cost. The Sheriff’s Office (SO) receives revenue from Partners for a Safer America which is used to offset budgeted operational costs of the Placerville and South Lake Tahoe jails.

On March 10, 2006, the Purchasing Agent signed an amendment extending the term of the agreement through May 10, 2008.

On May 11, 2008, the Purchasing Agent signed Agreement #742-SO411 with Partners for a Safer America to continue posting and advertising information on service boards on the jail premises for the term of May 11, 2008 through May 10, 2011.

On August 2, 2011, the Purchasing Agent signed Agreement #507-S1110 with Partners for a Safer America for the period May 11, 2011 to May 10, 2014.

Action to be taken following Board approval: The agreement will be signed by the Purchasing Agent and returned to the Sheriff's Office...
