The Board authorize the Chair to sign the attached Resolution granting authority to
transfer $23,263 from Services and Supplies to Equipment in the District Attorney -
Criminal Grants, Local Law Enforcement Block Grant (LLEBG), Fund 044-Budget Unit
REASON FOR RECOMMENDED ACTION
To transfer $23,263 from the Services and Supplies to Equipment in the District Attorney
- Local Law Enforcement Block Grant special revenue fund budget to allow for the
reimbursement of the Sheriff’s Office for their purchase of a law enforcement vehicle.
The District Attorney’s Office has received the yearly LLEBG funding since 1997. The
purpose of this program is to provide units of local government with funds to acquire
equipment or to underwrite projects to reduce crime and improve public safety. The
2003-2004 funding amounted to $41,874 and the local match amounted to $4,653. The
grant funds, as well as the match responsibilities, are divided equally between the District
Attorney and the Sheriff’s Office. The matches were made by both departments from
seized assets and all funds were deposited into a special revenue fund - (Fund 044) which
is administered by the District Attorney’s Office.
When the District Attorney’s Proposed Budget was submitted, the Sheriff’s half was
budgeted in Services and Supplies because the original intent was to apply this share of
the funds to training. However, since that time they have requested that the District
Attorney reimburse them out of the fund for a vehicle.
No fiscal impact. All funding and matches have been deposited in LLEBG grant special
revenue fund (Fund 044). No county contribution was requested.
