DISCUSSION

On March 7, 2017, the City Council approved Contract No. PS95866000LBPD24750, formerly contract number PS5862300LBPD24750, with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) to provide daily law enforcement services based on an eight-station model focusing on addressing crime, disorder, and reducing the system's vulnerability to terrorism. The contract term will expire on June 30, 2022.

 

To allow additional time for LACMTA to consider future plans for addressing community concerns regarding public safety on the transit system, current contracts for services are being amended. The requested actions amend three areas of the contract-the contract term and budget, COVID-19 vaccination status, and the Statement of Work. The current contract will be extended for an additional six months until December 21, 2022, with an option to extend the term of the contract for an additional six months until June 30, 2023. As part of the contract extension, LACMTA is requiring all employees assigned to the contract be vaccinated with a Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) / World Health Organization (WHO) approved COVID-19 Vaccine or have an approved religious or medical exemption. LBPD shall be responsible for managing exemptions and weekly testing oversight for unvaccinated LBPD employees assigned to the contract who are granted an exemption, and certify compliance upon LACMTA’s request.

 

Additionally, the contracted Statement of Work (Exhibit A of Contract No. PS95866000LBPD24750) will be revised in several areas, including the discontinuation of enforcement of transit fare evasion, the requirement for contracted staff to wear Body Worn Cameras, the use of TAP badges when boarding and patrolling the Metro system, ensuring consistency with the Principles of Campaign Zero “Eight Can’t Wait,” and monitoring complaint allegations related to racial discrimination, excessive force and sexual harassment, among others.

 

LACMTA has released a Request for Proposals for transit law enforcement services, due July 7, 2022. The proposed contract shall be for a term of three (3) years with two (2) one-year renewal options, contingent on funding. LBPD will be submitting a proposal to continue providing services within the City’s limits.

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Arturo D. Sanchez on June 2, 2022, and Purchasing Agent Michelle Wilson and Budget Management Officer Nader Kaamoush on June 6, 2022.

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action is requested on June 21, 2022, to amend Contract No. PS95866000LBPD24750 to ensure continuity of services.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

The requested amendment will extend the term of the contract to December 31, 2022, with an option for an additional extension until June 30, 2023. The maximum cost of the services contract with the extension, inclusive of the extension option, will not exceed $45,953,404. The expense associated with the agreement is fully offset by reimbursement revenue from LACMTA and is budgeted in the General Fund Group in the Police Department. 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.
