CITY COUNCIL AGENDA
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 applied for and has been granted $91,682 for this position for calendar year 2020.
Suggested Motion: I move to approve the 2020 HIDTA Sub-Contract Grant Award from DCI, in the amount of $91,682 and authorize Mayor Rust and Chief Jarvie to sign the agreement.
