Title

Probation Department recommending the Board approve a budget transfer reducing Services and Supplies by $18,926 and increasing fixed assets by the same amount, for the purchase of video monitoring expansion packs previously authorized for purchase in the Services and Supplies category. 

 

FUNDING:  General Fund.

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND


Video monitoring and recording of the premises is essential to the Probation Department's enhancement of safety for the public, clients, and staff.  The previously purchased server allows the department to complete the transition from analog to digital equipment, while the purchase of the expansion packs will bring all locations up to an industry standard and comply with CA AB839 Section 3, 26206.6.  The cost of the two expansion packs was included in the amount of the authorized FY 18/19 Budget for the Juvenile Hall and Juvenile Treatment Center Security Camera Project; however the funding was budgeted in Services and Supplies and should have been budgeted in Fixed Assets.

 

ALTERNATIVES

If the purchases are not approved, the department would not be in compliance with the statutory video retention requirements.

CAO RECOMMENDATION / COMMENTS

Approve as recommended.

 

FINANCIAL IMPACT

No Change to Net County Cost.  Funding for this item is already included in the FY 2018-19 budget, however this action requires a budget transfer to move from class 40 to 60. The item does not require a 4/5 vote of the Board as this is not an increase or addition to the budget.
