The interlocal agreement identifies the participating agencies within the grant, establishes the City of Reno as the fiscal agent and responsible party for all grant reporting during the program period of October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2023. In addition to the interlocal agreement, JAG is requiring "Certifications and Assurances by the Chief Executive of the Applicant Governtment," to be signed by the Mayor as part of the application process.
The approval of the interlocal agreement and associated U.S. Department of Justice Forms are needed to complete the application process of the 2020 JAG program Award in the amount of $161,256. Upon application approval, the Sparks Police Department will be allocated funds in the amount of $32,251. This funding will be used to partially support the purchase of Active Shooter/Rapid Response training equipment for City of Sparks law enforcement personnel.This equipment will provide instructors the tools necessary to best prepare sworn personnel in responding to active shooter situations.
1. Council may approve the interlocal agreement as recommneded by staff.
