17. Carson City School District

Presentation Only: Presentation by the Carson City School District regarding the Race to the Top Grant. (Dr. Steven Pradere, Brian Wallace & Susan Keema)

18. Sheriff

Staff Summary: Sheriff Furlong and Chief Abney have entered into preliminary discussions to move the Nevada Highway Patrol substation from its current Curry Street location to the Sheriff's Office. A move such as this will not only benefit the Sheriff's Office and the Nevada Highway Patrol, but will also benefit the community in terms of convenience. Having both departments in one location would be a one-stop shop for law enforcement needs. Sheriff's deputies and troopers already work together on certain types of calls. Having both in the same location will only increase an already strong working bond, ultimately resulting in a higher level of service to the public. Legalities of such a move are being addressed with the Carson City District Attorney's Office. Once the final document is developed the Interlocal Agreement will be brought before the Board for approval.

B) For Possible Action: To accept Grant Award 09-ARRA-64/09-ARRA-65 from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Criminal Justice Assistance in the amount of $100,494.99, contingent upon receipt of Authorization to Proceed. (Sheriff Furlong)

We have no permanent, reliable equipment to facilitate the destruction of these drugs. This award will provide funding for an incinerator which will accomplish that task. In addition, the award provides funding for Hand Held Radios and computer equipment for our Patrol and Detention divisions.
