and Members, Board of County Commissioners



FROM:
Carlos A. Gimenez

SUBJECT:
Resolution Authorizing Execution of the Tactical Diversion Task Force Agreement Between the U.S. Department of
Justice and Miami-Dade County

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached Tactical Diversion Task Force Agreement between the Drug Enforcement Administration and Miami-Dade County through the Miami-Dade Police Department. This Agreement provides authority to the Drug Enforcement Administration to pay overtime for police officers assigned to the Tactical Diversion Task Force for expenses necessary for investigations concerning trafficking in controlled substance pharmaceuticals and/or listed chemicals and effective prosecutions, federal and state. This Agreement is effective upon signature and will remain in effect through September 30, 2013, subject to the availability of funds from the Diversion Fee Account of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Scope
The Agreement will provide reimbursement to the Miami-Dade Police Department for the overtime costs of police officers assigned full-time to the Tactical Diversion Task Force.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The Agreement specifies that reimbursements will be paid by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Reimbursement limits will be established by the Drug Enforcement Administration. The Drug Enforcement Administration agrees to provide vehicles, equipment, and necessary funds to support the activities of the Miami-Dade Police Department officers assigned to the Task Force.

Track Record/Monitor
The Miami-Dade Police Department Narcotics Major, Raul Ubieta, will monitor this Agreement.

BODY
The purpose of this Agreement is to provide for the participation of the Miami-Dade Police Department officers as members of the Tactical Diversion Task Force of the Drug Enforcement Administration, and also the reimbursement of overtime costs for police officers assigned full-time to this Task Force. Overtime costs support activities necessary for investigations concerning trafficking in controlled substance pharmaceuticals and/or listed chemicals. Reimbursements will be submitted monthly and will be paid via electronic fund transfer directly to the Miami-Dade Police Department.

This Agreement will benefit Miami-Dade County and the Miami-Dade Police Department as it will facilitate inter-agency, multi-jurisdiction investigations where subjects will be arrested on federal charges with the potential for serious sentencing, including lengthy jail sentences. This is an important partnership opportunity with a key federal agency conducting joint investigations and addressing the trafficking in controlled substance pharmaceuticals and/or listed chemicals which affect the health, welfare, and safety of the people of Miami-Dade County.
