CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 16

Meeting Date: September 12, 2000

Subject/Title: Authorize CIP Monies In An Amount Not To Exceed $60,000.00 For The Purchase of Police In-Car Video Units. 

Submitted by: Lt. Davies, Police Department/Yun Cho, Information Systems

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION 
Approve the expenditure of Information Systems CIP monies in an amount not to exceed $60,000.00 for the purchase of twelve (12) In-Car Video units to be installed in police patrol vehicles.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None

BACKGROUND
Law enforcement has long recognized the value of documenting emergency incidents by means of recorded videotape. These benefits include, but are not limited to, accurately portraying events as they occur, documenting police contacts with the public, providing strong evidence in court, training refinement and protecting the City against false claims of police misconduct. The result is improved criminal prosecutions, less officer overtime in court, enhanced training, fewer citizen complaints and reduced City exposure to liability. 

Information Systems CIP monies include upgrading and implementing new information technologies. In the current CIP budget $60,000.00 has been earmarked by Information Systems for the implementation of twelve (12) In-Car Video Systems to be installed in police vehicles. The Police Department and Information Systems researched and evaluated In-Car Video units designed for law enforcement and available in the Western Region. The Kustom In-Car Video unit meets the criteria that all components are industrial quality to ensure durability and longevity and the cost is within the earmarked CIP funds budgeted by Information Systems.
