Council Action Items

A.

Consideration to Approve the 2021 HIDTA sub-contract award from the Department of Criminal Investigations

For more than 20 years, the Green River Police Department has received grant funding through from the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) as part of the federal HIDTA program. This funding pays the salary and majority of fringe benefits for one task force officer assigned to the DCI Southwest Drug Enforcement Team. This position is currently the only GRPD Officer dedicated solely to drug investigations. Through our partnership with DCI, our officer is able to draw from the experience and capabilities of others on the team while coordinating investigative efforts and minimizing redundant investigative efforts from multiple agencies. The Police Department has applied for and has been granted $100,610 for this position for calendar year 2021.

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the 2021 HIDTA Sub-contract award of $100,610 and authorize the Mayor and Chief Jarvie to sign the agreement, pending legal approval.
