City of San Antonio Crime Control and Prevention District
Two-Year Proposed Crime Control Plan and Two-Year Budget Plan

INTRODUCTION: Texas Local Government Code, Chapter 363, provides an opportunity for municipality to create a Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD or District), and to impose a sales and use tax to finance the District, upon voter approval. The purpose of the District is to enhance the capability of law enforcement and to further crime prevention programs. As early as 1995, the Greater San Antonio Crime Prevention Commission appointed an ad hoc committee to study the creation of a Crime Control Taxing District for the City of San Antonio. The Committee solicited input from the Police Department and other organizations as part of their study. As a result of their efforts and with evidence of community support of a CCPD as evidenced through public surveys, on March 10, 2005, the San Antonio City Council passed an Ordinance proposing the creation of the City of San Antonio Crime Control and Prevention District. Soon thereafter, on April 28, 2005, City Council passed a Resolution appointing the seven members to the CCPD Temporary Board. The temporary board members included: Dr. Robert Marbut, Col. Ray Hamilton (retired), Richard Bocanegra, Father Jimmy Drennan, Col. Ethel Nelson (retired), Arthur Trevino, and Rev. Job Webb. The CCPD Temporary Board is charged, by law, with formulating and approving, a two-year crime control and crime prevention plan and a two-year budget plan prior to calling an election on the creation of the District. In accordance with Section 363.061 of the Texas Local Government Code, the Crime Control Plan is required to include the following: a detailed list of the crime control and crime prevention strategies to be supported by the district; and the method of annually evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of individual crime control and crime prevention strategies. Whereas the budget plan is to include the following: the amount of money budgeted by the district for each crime control and crime prevention strategy; the amount of money budgeted by the district and the percentage of the total budget of the district for administration, with individual amounts showing the cost of the administration that would be conducted by the district and cost of the administration that could be conducted by private or pubic entities; the estimated amount of money available to the district from all sources during the ensuing year; the amount of balances expected at the end of the years for which the budget is prepared; and the estimated tax rate that will be required. These Plans will be made available to the general public prior to the vote on the creation of the CCPD.

The goals for the Temporary Board were to enhance the crime fighting tools of the San Antonio Police Department through the acquisition of personnel, new equipment and technology. Additionally it is to address the overall crime rates in San Antonio through the creation of innovative programs and enhancement of preventive efforts, especially in the areas of domestic violence and juvenile crime. Finally the Temporary Board through the Crime Control Plan seeks to enhance actual and perceived feelings of safety for all the citizens in all areas of the city including neighborhoods, commercial areas, parks and public facilities; and to increase citizen participation in community policing activities. To assure the accomplishment of these goals, the Temporary Board of the CCPD developed the following mission statement: The mission of the San Antonio Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD) is to make San Antonio the safest large city in the United States by maximizing the use of voter approved CCPD sales tax revenues to enhance the capability of the City’s crime control public safety resources and to support new or existing community-based crime prevention initiatives. Since May, 2005, the Temporary Board has met with local law enforcement officials, local community supervision and corrections departments, local juvenile probation departments, and numerous business and non-profit agencies in developing the two-year Crime Control Plan and Budget Plan. As required by the Texas Local Government Code, the developed plan and budget, detailed below, includes money budgeted for crime control and crime prevention strategies, administration of the district, and for required annual audits and evaluations. It is imperative that each proposed plan and program are monitored for fiscal accountability, as well as effectiveness and efficiency. As such, each initiative will develop specific goals and objectives and specific spending plans including detailed timelines for their accomplishment thereof. In order to do so, periodic on-site visits and monitoring of each strategy to ensure the goals and objectives are being achieved in accordance with expected outcomes will be conducted. Costs associated with the administration and evaluation of the crime control plan and budget plan are to be absorbed by the CCPD. The sole source of funds budgeted to finance the CCPD is derived from a 1/8% sales and use tax. The budgeted cost for administration of the CCPD is $596,156 or 3.1%. At the direction of the Temporary Board, on November 8, 2005, the voters of the City of San Antonio will be asked to consider whether or not to create the City of San Antonio, Texas Crime Control and Prevention District and to impose a sales and use tax at a rate of 1/8% to finance the CCPD. If the citizens approve its creation and the imposition of the sales and use tax, the local sales and use tax rate will increase by 1/8%. According to the State Comptroller, the sales and use tax increase would impact a family of four by $26.00 annually. The budgeted income during the first twelve months of

6

collection is $18,800,000. The budgeted income during the second twelve months is $20,500,000. Working within the confines of the budgeted income, the Temporary Board identified five major crime control and crime prevention components for funding during the initial two-year crime control and crime prevention plan. These five are: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Safer Neighborhoods – Community Policing; Family Safety – Reducing Family Violence; Juvenile Issues – Keeping Juveniles Safe and Crime Free; Senior Safety – Reducing Crimes Against the Elderly; and Business and Visitor Safety – Reducing Property Crimes Against Visitors and Businesses.

The income and expenditures for these five initiatives are projected at $18,800,000 for the first twelve months, and $20,500,000 for the second twelve months; the totals to be derived from tax proceeds. In accordance with Chapter 363.061 of the Texas Local Government code, the Crime Control Plan presents the results of preliminary needs assessment conducted by the Temporary Board and proposes a budget accordingly. The Plans are designed to provide early intervention, law enforcement, prevention, and assessment functions to control crime control in the City of San Antonio. It specifically addresses the first twoyears of the initial five-year term of the Crime Control and Prevention District. In accordance with State Law, should voters approve the creation of the CCPD on November 8, 2005 a permanent board will be appointed by City Council. The permanent board will annually develop the CCPD’s budget in cooperation with the City Council of the City of San Antonio. Should you have any questions, comments, or need for clarification please feel free to contact any of the Temporary Board members or Dr. Larry Birney, a Captain with the San Antonio Police Department who is the City of San Antonio liaison to the CCPD. Captain Birney may be reached at 207-7240 or by cell phone 260-3927. Temporary CCPD Board members may be reached through Captain Birney.

INITIATIVE 1: SAFER NEIGHBORHOODS: COMMUNITY POLICING
BACKGROUND: Since the introduction of community policing and citizen involvement programs over 10 years ago, the citizens of San Antonio have enthusiastically embraced community policing as the most effective way to keep neighborhoods safe. Residents have consistently involved themselves in policecommunity programs such as Cellular on Patrol and Volunteers in Policing. The citizens have worked closely with City staff from the Police Department (“SAPD”), Code Compliance and other City Departments to decrease graffiti, clean up overgrown lots, and solve neighborhood problems that lead to decay and crime. As the City has increased in population over the past 10 years, and as more and more residents have embraced community policing and community involvement, there is a need to sustain and expand San Antonio’s efforts to keep neighborhoods safe. Cellular on Patrol (COP): Starting in 1993, 35 citizens graduated from the first COP class. This very popular program has expanded to reach more than 9000 San Antonio residents who patrol their neighborhoods, calling in criminal activity on cellular phones. Currently over 700 new members are added to the COP rolls each year. To sustain and expand the COP program, it is necessary to provide the volunteers with shirts and magnetic signs for patrol identification, communication devices, observation and documentation equipment, and equipment to be used in training classes. First Twelve Months Total: $225,500 Second Twelve Months Total: $38,680 Volunteers in Policing (VIP): This program started in 1997 as a way to use civilian volunteers to perform support tasks that would assist or free up sworn personnel. Since then the VIP program has expanded to include over 400 active graduates of the training program, who volunteer in nearly all parts of the SAPD. VIP members provide fingerprinting of children, serve as tour guides at PD headquarters and the Training Academy, provide courtesy phone calls during Municipal Court warrant drives, participate in Crime Prevention programs, and assist with training programs for SAPD cadets and for civilians (Cellular on Patrol and Citizen Police Academy training). To sustain and expand the VIP program, it is necessary to provide a means of transportation to VIP activities as well as volunteer identification and equipment for performing their various duties and activities. First Twelve Months Total: $63,019 Second Twelve Months Total: $19,350

Volunteer Vehicle Burglary Surveillance: COBRA-T Program: COBRA-T citizen volunteers are specially trained to provide surveillance of large parking lots to identify suspicious activities related to vehicle burglary and vehicle theft. COBRA-T volunteers generally position themselves on rooftops, or in observation vehicles, and communicate their sightings of criminal activity to SAPD officers who are patrolling the lots. There are currently 50 COBRA-T volunteers who participate in surveillance, and there is interest in the community in expanding the program. Equipment needs include observation vehicles, patrol identification clothing, and communication and observation devices. First Twelve Months Total: $174,527 Second Twelve Months Total: $28,900 Public Safety Teams (PST): Handicapped Parking/Fire Lane Parking Enforcement: PST civilian volunteers patrol parking lots, enforcing parking violations in marked handicapped parking slots and fire lanes. PST volunteers are authorized by City Ordinance to write citations for these violations, thereby freeing up SAPD officers from this duty, and providing services to the community. PST volunteers need patrol vehicles, uniforms, as well as communication and observation equipment. First Twelve Months Total: $275,397 Second Twelve Months Total: $151,616 Neighborhood Safety: Graffiti continues to be a neighborhood problem throughout San Antonio, and SAPD officers and neighborhood residents need additional resources to decrease the presence of this blight. Graffiti clean-up efforts generally involve labor provided by persons serving out community service sentences, but there is a constant need for equipment and supplies. This program provides for dedicated officers and equipment to work in neighborhoods dealing specifically with graffiti and its root causes. First Twelve Months Total: $647,084 Second Twelve Months Total: $573,825 Park Environmental Crime: Over the last several years, the City of San Antonio has seen a dramatic increase in the amount of new land for parks. Much of the new park land is undeveloped, rough terrain, making it impossible to monitor using conventional patrol vehicles. As the new parks receive increased use by citizens, there is a need for additional Park Police officers and equipment, especially in the areas where environmental protection is of major concern and access is limited. Additionally, City-owned golf courses, also within the Park Police jurisdiction, have increasingly suffered from vandalism, thefts and burglaries, due to the lack of security or surveillance at the facilities. First Twelve Months Total: $393,009 Second Twelve Months Total: $266,124

Neighborhood Dangerous Premises and Drug House Abatement: Neighborhood safety is negatively impacted by the presence of abandoned buildings used by gangs and drug dealers. To facilitate concentrated efforts on this problem, it is necessary to increase the number of San Antonio’s Code Compliance Department investigators to deal with responding to citizen complaints on dangerous premises. Additionally, Municipal Court system lacks an adequate number of prosecutors to deal with the cases once Code Compliance investigators act on them. Increasing Municipal Court prosecutors by one for Code enforcement along with increasing the number of Code Compliance Dangerous Premises Investigators will result in a decrease of the havens for drug activities, gang activities, and vermin. First Twelve Months Total: $342,487 Second Twelve Months Total: $274,349 Office of Homeless Persons: The homeless persons who frequent parks, business corridors, and neighborhoods are both frequent victims of crime and participants in violations. In the Downtown area, homeless persons are often victims of crimes against persons, including assaults, robberies and rapes. This program dedicates one new SAPD patrol officer position and one civilian staff for a new Office of Homeless Persons. The office will work closely with homeless persons to decrease the occurrence of these problems. This will be done by providing needed beds, assistance, equipment and supervision for removing trash and graffiti in areas frequented by homeless. First Twelve Months Total: $318,240 Second Twelve Months Total: $285,482 Vacancy Management: The CCPD proposes to fund the costs for initial training of 40 SAPD cadets during the first year (salary, benefits, and equipment for the first 10 ½ months i.e. until the cadet is off of probation. In the second year, the CCPD increases its funding to 80 SAPD cadets. Salary and other costs after the 10 ½ months will be assumed by the City budget once the cadet completes his or her probationary period. The CCPD will also pay for the required vehicles and other equipment for the 40 plus 80 officers. CCPD will also provide funding for three new patrol officer positions in the Helicopter Unit, to bring helicopter coverage to 24/7. First Twelve Months Total: $3,114,739 Second Twelve Months Total: $6,015,072 Emergency 9-1-1 Enhancement Program: Since 1999, the number of calls for service made to SAPD has increased more than 13%. As cellular phones become more common and as the City continues be the third fastest growing City in the Nation, the number of calls into the 9-1-1 center is expected to multiply at alarming rates. The problem is particularly acute during the peak hours of 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm. In the first and second years, the CCPD will provide funding for additional call takers to work during the peak hours, including current full-time staff, part-time staff, and specially-trained volunteers (VIP’s). Additional funding is provided for necessary training of Volunteer and Emergency 9-1-1 staff. First Twelve Months Total: $218,942 Second Twelve Months Total: $221,017

363 Statutory Obligations: The Crime Control and Prevention District will handle over $18 million in the first year and over $20 million in revenues each year. The Local Government Code 363 provides for staffing necessary to accomplish the tasks of dispensing the funds, purchasing equipment, monitoring programs, and conducting audits and performance reviews for a variety of initiatives and programs. Each initiative or program receiving CCPD funding will be fully reviewed before funding, and monitored and evaluated continuously for goal fulfillment. This will be accomplished through a series of quarterly, bi-annual, and annual on-site visits and expenditure reviews to assure that the goals and objectives as well as promised outcomes are being provided. In addition, full annual audits will be conducted by the staff of the CCPD on each program or initiative. Programs or initiatives found not in compliance with stated goals, objectives and outcomes will be subject to having their funding removed by the CCPD Board. First Twelve Months Total: $481,777 Second Twelve Months Total: $492,721 CCPD Education and Training: Education and Training is a vital component of all crime prevention activities and control initiatives. Without proper education and training, activities and initiatives may lose efficiency and effectiveness. Recognizing this need, the CCPD is allocating funds for a variety of education and training programs for both citizens and police officers in areas directly impacted by CCPD. In addition, the CCPD sees the need to bring together annually communities, business, non-profits, and governmental agencies to discuss the effectiveness of the CCPD and to explore new programs and initiatives. This meeting will provide an annual public forum for input into future CCPD funding. First Twelve Months Total: $447,756 Second Twelve Months Total: $503,515 TOTAL COST OF SAFER NEIGHBORHOODS INITIATIVES: First Twelve Months: $6,702,477 Second Twelve Months: $8,870,651

INITIATIVE 2: FAMILY SAFETY – REDUCING FAMILY VIOLENCE
BACKGROUND: Throughout the criminal justice system it is widely acknowledged that family violence is closely related to child abuse and sexual abuse. The abuse continues across generations. Abused children, or children who witness domestic violence, often become bullies or violent offenders as juveniles, and later abusers, victims or criminals as adults. Domestic abuse is also closely tied with substance abuse. Decreasing domestic violence involves not only law enforcement and the courts, but also the health care system, shelter access, drug treatment, anger management, and a variety of counseling and educational services. There is a need to enhance agency interaction and streamline access to resources for victims as well as those working to assist them. Central to this is a focused program of prevention and education through a cooperative effort of law enforcement, prosecutors, counselors, advocates, and support services. Family Justice Center: The Bexar County District Attorney’s Office has secured a oneyear federal grant for the initial establishment of a Family Justice Center at the former Brady Green Hospital building, scheduled to open August 1, 2005. The Center will house a wide range of services related to preventing and controlling Family violence, including law enforcement, specialized prosecutors, advocates who issue protective orders, mental health counselors, a health clinic, and representatives of shelters and other services directed at victims of family violence. This initiative provides funds for the facilities, technology and staff for continuation of the program after August of 2006. First Twelve Months Total: $260,367 Second Twelve Months Total: $267,940 Domestic Violence Support: The San Antonio Police Department provides direct support for victims of Family Violence through two ways: Crisis Response Teams (CRT’s) of police officers and civilian counselors who work with victims and persons at risk for Family Violence, and Detective Investigators in the Family Violence Unit who investigate incidents of Family Violence and file cases on perpetrators. Depending on the severity of the incidents, cases are filed with Municipal Court or with the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office. To deal with the increasing number of Family Violence cases, there is a need for an increase in police detectives, civilian caseworkers, Municipal Court Prosecutors and technological support, most of which will be housed in the new Family Justice Center. First Twelve Months Total: $1,241,600 Second Twelve Months Total: $1,119,553

12

Child Abuse and Neglect: SAPD Sex Crimes and Family Violence Unit Detective Investigators dealing with Child Abuse and Neglect work closely with the Alamo Children’s Advocacy Center. This initiative provides for two new Detective Investigator positions to be assigned at the Advocacy Center to work on-site with victims of Child Abuse and Neglect. Also due to the increased number of Child Abuse cases being reported, additional investigators specializing in this crime are needed in the District Attorney’s Office. Child Abuse and Neglect often are result of substance abuse and behavioral problems. Funding is provided for additional programs such as a Drug Court. First Twelve Months Total: $636,865 Second Twelve Months Total: $922,956 On-Line Predator Initiative (D.E.L.E.T.E.): The Bexar County District Attorney’s Office has initiated a program to catch on-line predators that target children. D.E.L.E.T.E is made up of two prosecutors and one district attorney investigator who will prosecute people who use the internet to send sexual material to minors or solicit a child, produce or distribute child pornography or use the internet to prostitute minors. First Twelve Months Total: $232,639 Second Twelve Months Total: $239,619 TOTAL COST OF FAMILY SAFETY INITIATIVE: First Twelve Months: $2,371,471 Second Twelve Months: $2,550,068

INITIATIVE 3: JUVENILE ISSUES – KEEPING JUVENILES SAFE AND CRIME FREE
BACKGROUND: Juveniles become involved with the criminal justice system both as victims and as perpetrators of criminal acts. During 2004, nearly 10,000 juveniles under the age of 17 were handled by the Bexar County Juvenile Justice Center. Clearly, our children need to be protected from situations where they may become involved in criminal activity as perpetrators or victims. The CCPD is proposing to fund after school program, recreation programs, gang prevention programs, and school safety programs. Juvenile Safety Officer Program: In the first year, 14 SAPD officers will be hired as Juvenile Safety Officers. These officers will be tasked with focusing on the juvenile community at all levels. Officers will organize and interact with juvenile school services, after-school programs, vacation time activities, and athletic programs. First Twelve Months Total: $1,650,204 Second Twelve Months Total: $1,582,738 Gang Prevention: An alarming number of school aged children and young adults are finding their way into gang activity. In an effort to focus increased attention to this program in all areas of the city, this initiative will proved for the expansion of personnel and equipment dedicated specifically to gang abatement. Over the last several years, national attention is being focused on the increase in crime in schools. Closely associated with this problem is school bullying. This initiative created a Campus Crime Stoppers Program and a Student Bullying Prevention Program to be made available to all elementary and middle schools in San Antonio. Additionally, this initiative will continue funding of the Community Initiatives Teen Court. First Twelve Months Total: $2,171,884 Second Twelve Months Total: $1,632,418 Recreation Initiatives: Of the nearly 200,000 San Antonio residents age 10 to 19, less than 25% have access to after-school or vacation recreational programs. Children without recreational opportunities often turn to risk behaviors, such as drug use or gang activity. Expanding after-school and vacation recreational programs to reach more of San Antonio’s youth will provide constructive outlets for youthful energy and decrease opportunities for risky, anti-social behavior. Funding is for enlarging and enhancing programs administered through the City of San Antonio Parks Department. These include Splash Zone, Saturday Night Dodge Ball, Academy of Rock, Hoop it Up Basketball, Kid Quest, Play Zone, and extension of hours for community centers and city swimming pools. Additionally this initiative provides funding for juvenile programs administered by the YMCA, JOVEN, PAL, San Antonio Fatherhood Campaign, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio. Additional funding is provided for monitoring and evaluation of these programs. First Twelve Months Total: $2,540,189 Second Twelve Months Total: $2,271,211

14

School Crossing Guards: School Crossing Guards (“Mama Patrols”) provide supervision and street-crossing safety to primary school children on their way to school in the morning and when they are dismissed from school in the afternoon. Crossing Guards work two 2-hour shifts each school day, setting out traffic cones at school crossings, and being visible guardians of student safety in school zones. Funding is provided for increasing the number of Crossing Guards and required equipment, to assist schools that need their services. First Twelve Months Total: $89,790 Second Twelve Months Total: $82,488 TOTAL COST OF JUVENILE SAFETY INITIATIVE: First Twelve Months: $6,452,067 Second Twelve Months: $5,568,855

15

INITIATIVE 4: SENIOR SAFETY – REDUCING CRIMES AGAINST THE ELDERLY
BACKGROUND: The number of elderly residents of San Antonio is increasing, as the so-called “Baby Boomer” generation reaches age 65. With this increase, crimes committed against elderly residents are rising at alarming rates. Elder crimes are most often physical abuse, theft or fraud committed by family members or caretakers, repair scams committed by predatory repair men, or get rich quick scams increasingly committed by telemarketers. Prevention and control of Elder Crime is complicated by the reluctance of victims to report crimes, the difficulty of investigation and prosecution of crimes that are often complicated by victim reticence and family resistance, and the lack of public education about the serious and prevention of Elder Crime. Crimes Against the Elderly Detail: Currently, SAPD investigates crimes against the elderly as they are reported, but does not have staff who specialize in or focus on Elder Crime. Funding is provided to create a Crimes Against the Elderly Detail within SAPD, with six Detective Investigations, one supervisor, and support staff and equipment. First Twelve Months Total: $842,750 Second Twelve Months Total: $803,243 Elder Justice Division: As additional Elder crimes are reported to the police, the number of cases filed with the District Attorney’s Office will increase. Preparing cases for prosecution of crimes such as elder fraud or abuse are often complicated and time consuming, requiring staff dedicated to this specialized area of criminal justices. Funding is provided for a special Elder Justice Division of the DA’s Office, including prosecutors, investigators, victim advocates, and support staff. First Twelve Months Total: $610,950 Second Twelve Months Total: $629, 280 TOTAL COST OF SENIOR SAFETY INITIATIVE: First Twelve Months: $1,453,700 Second Twelve Months: $1,432,523

16

INITIATIVE 5: BUSINESS AND VISITOR SAFETY – REDUCING PROPERTY CRIMES AGAINST VISITORS AND BUSINESSES
BACKGROUND: San Antonio residents and visitors alike are victims of property loss in the San Antonio Airport Baggage area. Aggressive drivers put residents and visitors at risk on our highways. San Antonio businesses and their customers are increasingly becoming victims of Identity Theft. This fifth Crime Prevention and Crime Control Initiative address these concerns. Prevention Programs: Surveillance cameras and the technology that supports surveillance is the major focus of prevention programs. This initiative includes strengthening surveillance in the Airport Baggage area. As concerns for officer and citizen safety increase on city streets and highways, surveillance cameras in police vehicles have become standard across the nation. This initiative provides for 60 SAPD traffic enforcement vehicles to be equipment with cameras during the first twelve months. 120 additional cameras will be provided in the second twelve months. Additional funding is made available for technical and support staff necessary to operate these programs. First Twelve Months Total: $982,486 Second Twelve Months Total: $1,132,565 Identity Theft Detection and Prevention Program: Residents, visitors and businesses alike are impacted by the rapidly-increasing crime of Identity Theft. This program will provide for two new detective investigators who will focus on investigating the crime of Identity Theft and on filing cases on criminals who engage in Identity Theft. First Twelve Months Total: $199,318 Second Twelve Months Total: $205,298 Reserve for Possible Fluctuation in Tax Revenue: First Twelve Months: $638,481 Second Twelve Months: $740,040 TOTAL COST OF BUSINESS AND VISITOR SAFETY INITIATIVE: First Twelve Months: $1,820,285 Second Twelve Months: $2,077,903
