Body

 

Staff Recommends: Approval of the attached Resolution.

 

 

Explanation:

On July 3, 2017, the City Commission approved R-2017-200, authorizing the execution of the School Resource Officer Agreement between the City of Hollywood and the School Board of Broward County, which set forth the terms and conditions for the assignment of three (3) School Resource Officers in thirteen (13) public elementary schools, seven (7) School Resource Officers in seven (7) public secondary schools and one (1) School Resource Officer in one (1) other school operated by the School Board of Broward County.

 

The School Board of Broward County and the City of Hollywood desire to add an additional School Resource Officer thereby assigning four (4) School Resource Officers in thirteen (13) public elementary schools, as more specifically set forth in the First Amendment to Agreement.  The City of Hollywood and the School Board of Broward County understand that the School Resource Officer Program is established for the purposes set forth in Section 230.2318, Florida Statutes, including but not limited to assistance in prevention of juvenile delinquency.

 

The City of Hollywood and the School Board of Broward County realize that the School Resource Officer Program is a wonderful benefit to school administration, students and the local community as a whole.  The City of Hollywood and the School Board of Broward County acknowledge that the School Resource Officers assigned to the Elementary, Middle and High Schools are instrumental in facilitating student involvement in community service programs and projects.

 

The School Board of Broward County, through this First Amendment to Agreement, intends to defray a fraction of the City’s cost toward the City’s School Resource Officer Program by reimbursing the City of Hollywood in the amount of $32,376.40.

 

Pursuant to the First Amendment to Agreement, the City shall make appropriate pro rata reductions in the amount invoiced during any month in which circumstances reduced the amount of SRO service provided by the City.  The Acting Chief of Police recommends the appropriate City Officials execute the attached First Amendment to Agreement between the School Board of Broward County and the City of Hollywood for the assignment of one additional School Resource Officer during the term of the agreement.
