Title
Sheriff’s Office recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign and execute a reimbursement agreement between the County and the El Dorado Union High School District for reimbursement of funds in the amount of $54,575 for the grant performance period that ends June 30, 2020 from the Prop 56 Tobacco Tax Grant program for the installation of Fly Sense™ Vape Sensors.

FUNDING: Prop 56 Tobacco Tax Grant.
Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The Tobacco Law Enforcement Grant Program has been established to provide funding to local law enforcement agencies to assist in the reduction of illegal sales and marketing of all tobacco products to minors. The CA DOJ understands that the use of tobacco products varies greatly across the state and encourages applicants to this program to tailor their strategies to meet the unique needs and use variations that exist locally.

The Sheriff’s Office applied for this funding on March 23, 2018 and was awarded $924,085 with a grant term of July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2020. The original application submitted included requests to fund 1.0 FTE Deputy Sheriff I/II to act as a School Resource Officer (SRO), equipment costs related to the SRO, trainings materials and signs for retailers of tobacco products, social media efforts, costs related to tobacco mitigation operations, and the purchase and testing of new Fly Sense™ technology for school bathrooms.

The Sheriff’s Office is requesting the Board approve the reimbursement of installation costs as related to the Fly Sense™ Vape Sensors. These sensors will relay when students are smoking tobacco products in school restrooms and then administration will be able to work the Sheriff’s Office to explain the dangers of tobacco products to the students.

ALTERNATIVES
Without covering installation costs, the purchase of the Fly Sense™ Vape Sensors would have little feasible use to the schools.
