A Business Impact Statement is not required because this is not a rule.
The Sparks Police Department is requesting Council approve an Interlocal Agreement with the Washoe County Sheriff's Office for Extradition Service. A previous agreement was signed in 2013 and expired in June 2016.
The Washoe County Sheriff's Office performs all extraditions for and with the Sparks Police Department. The Washoe County Sheriff's Office provides this service and appropriately bills the Sparks Police Department for the services on a quarterly basis. This process began in 2003 with an Interlocal Agreement between both agencies and their respective government entities. To date, this agreement has been beneficial to the City of Sparks and the Police Department specifically, as this is a cost effective method for extraditing subjects with Sparks Police Department warrants.
It has been determined that the cost sharing of the extradition functions between both agencies is the most prudent and fiscally responsible course of action. Since 2003 the WCSO has completed all extraditions for the Sparks Police Department; resulting in substantial savings in both resources and money. It is most prudent that the SPD and WCSO continue this process. The goal of this agreement is to spread the cost burden more evenly between user agencies and eliminate cost to WCSO for our Department's extraditions. The current proposed agreement is simply a continuation of an already proven, beneficial program. The new agreement has been attached, and the budgeted amount is the same as last year.
The City Council could deny renewal of the Interlocal Agreement.
I move to approve the Interlocal Agreement for Extraditions with the Washoe County Sheriff's Office.
