TITLE

Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to execute an agreement, and all necessary documents including any amendments, with the Long Beach Public Transportation Company, to provide law enforcement and security services, in an estimated annual amount of $2,410,592, beginning October 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022, with the option to renew for three additional one-year periods, at the discretion of the City Manager.  (Citywide)

 

DISCUSSION

City Council approval is requested for the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) to enter into an agreement with the Long Beach Public Transportation Company (Long Beach Transit), to continue to provide law enforcement and security services under a new contract. Long Beach Transit has contracted with the City for law enforcement services since 1993, with the most recent agreement expiring September 30, 2021.

 

The terms and conditions of the new agreement include Long Beach Transit's full reimbursement to LBPD for personnel straight time, benefits, overtime, fleet, and technology, as well as indirect costs. Budgeted personnel include a Police Lieutenant (0.50 FTE), a Police Sergeant (1.0 FTE) and Police Officers (6.0 FTEs) to provide law enforcement and security services.

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Arturo D. Sanchez on August 23, 2021 and by Budget Analysis Officer Greg Sorensen on August 20, 2021.

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action is requested on September 14, 2021, to ensure the agreement is in place expeditiously.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

The total cost of services provided under this agreement will be fully offset by reimbursement revenue from Long Beach Transit.  The Fiscal Year 2022 (FY 22) reimbursement from Long Beach Transit is estimated at $2,410,592, for direct and indirect costs. The agreement allows for periodic cost increases, with written approval by Long Beach Transit, should the City's cost to provide service increase during the contract period. In FY 22, sufficient appropriation is budgeted in the General Fund Group in the Police Department. Appropriation for subsequent years will be requested through the annual budget process. This recommendation has no staffing impact beyond the normal budgeted scope of duties and is consistent with existing City Council priorities. There is no local job impact associated with this recommendation.

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.
