8-1. Sheriff 

A) For Possible Action: To approve the 2013 Cooperative Law Enforcement Annual Operating Plan and Financial Plan for Patrol Services between the United States Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit and the Carson City Sheriff's Office in the amount of $10,000 - Agreement number 11-LE-11051360-232 (Mod 03). (Ken Furlong)

Staff Summary: This is a continuation of previous Operating Plans and provides for the reimbursement of costs relative to law enforcement activities while performing work for the United States Forest Service. Patrol areas include Lake Tahoe National Forest beaches, forests and parking areas including but not limited to Chimney Beach and Secret Harbor/Secret Cove. 

B) For Possible Action: To approve the reclassification of a civilian Sheriff's Support Specialist position to a sworn Deputy Sheriff position. (Ken Furlong)

Staff Summary: Resulting from the 2010 budget reductions, the detention division staffing was reduced by eight (8) positions. Currently there are 21 sworn positions and one civilian detention position to staff the facility 24/7. Civilian duty assignments are prohibited from having any direct inmate contact or transport within the facility (such as to and from court).

There are three (3) distinct deputy sheriff defined positions. Of the three (3), and only one can be staffed by a civilian (Control Facility). The reclassification of the civilian position would allow the detention division additional flexibility in staffing and assignments. Further, since civilian employees are prohibited from direct inmate contact, the reclassification would provide for the additional tasking of responding to emergencies and enhance the safety and welfare of both employees and inmates alike.

Staff Summary: This item represents the quarterly business review related to the City-wide performance scorecard. A scorecard is a tool that focuses our attention on those things most important, aligns our activities throughout the organization, measures our progress and monitors projects (initiatives) that improve our performance. In the report the objective represents what we want to achieve as a City. The performance measures give us a progress report on meeting those objectives by comparing actual data with established targets. These targets represent our expected and/or desired performance. If targets are not being met, staff focuses on those areas and determines what, if anything, can be done to reverse the situation. Initiatives are those projects adopted by the Board to support their strategic objectives and move performance in a positive direction.
