TO: HONORABLE MAYOR & CITY COUNCIL

FROM: CITY MANAGER

DATE: SEPTEMBER 10, 2005

SUBJECT: LOMITA STATION DEPLOYMENT OF RESOURCES

RECOMMENDATION

Provide direction to staff.

BACKGROUND

At the City Council Budget Workshop on May 31, 2005, Captain Zuanich presented a report on the management of the City’s contract with the sheriff for public safety services. His report focused on law enforcement strategies, deployment of forces, time-keeping and budget management and analysis of crime and traffic statistics. The Council was particularly interested in whether or not routine patrol could be reduced in favor of additional traffic enforcement. The Council felt that more time was needed to explore these issues with the Sheriff’s Department. Councilman Gardiner suggested that this discussion be combined with the joint meeting with the Traffic Safety Commission.

DISCUSSION

Captain Zuanich and his staff have prepared a powerpoint presentation to initiate discussion of the sheriff’s contract.
