Title
Sheriff's Office recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign Agreement 497-F1711 with Partners for a Safer America for the term May 11, 2017 through May 10, 2020, which will allow the Contractor to install and maintain service boards on the premises that provide information regarding Bail Bond companies for inmates and other individuals on the Sheriff's Detention Facility premises, contingent upon review and approval by Risk Management.

FUNDING: N/A- Revenue Agreement.
Body
DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION
The Sheriff's Office (SO) recommends that the Board approve this contract for the continuation of Partners for a Safer America maintaining the bill boards at the County Jails.

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The SO has been using Partners for a Safer America since May 18, 2004 for the installation and maintenance of advertisement boards at the South Lake Tahoe and Placerville Jails for Bail Bond companies only. This Agreement allows for the SO to collect a percentage of the revenue from the Bail bond companies who pay to advertise on these boards. Having the Bail Bond company information on the billboards in the Jail assists the EDSO Custody Division with avoiding complaints and litigation.

The current contract with Partners for a Safer America will expire on May 10, 2017. This new contract will have a term of May 11, 2017 to May 10, 2020 and will allow the SO to collect seventy five percent (75%) of revenue received from the bill boards at the Jails.

We are currently working with Partners for a Safer America to get insurance certificates, once received they will be uploaded into Ebix and the blue route will be routed through Risk Management for approval.

ALTERNATIVES
Not renewing this contract would result in a loss of revenues, and a loss of information available to the inmates.

OTHER DEPARTMENT / AGENCY INVOLVEMENT
County Counsel approved this agreement, and Risk Management will approve once all insurance documents are collected.
