TO:

FROM:
Carlos A. Gimenez

SUBJECT:
Resolution Authorizing Execution of a Memorandum of Understanding Between The Florida Department of
Children and Families and Miami-Dade County

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached Memorandum of Understanding between the Florida Department of Children and Families and Miami-Dade County, through its department, the Miami-Dade Police Department.

Scope
The Memorandum of Understanding is countywide.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
There is no fiscal impact with this Memorandum of Understanding.

Track Record/Monitor
The Miami-Dade Police Department Communications Bureau Major Saima Plasencia will monitor this Memorandum of Understanding.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
The purpose of the Memorandum of Understanding is to further clarify the electronic dissemination requirement from the Florida Abuse Hotline to the Miami-Dade Police Department, as it relates to non-caregiver abuse and child-on-child sexual abuse allegations. The statute changes were created as a direct result of recent (national) child abuse cases which involved non-caregiver abuse allegations. The statute changes were established via HB1355 which was signed into law by Governor Rick Scott effective October 1, 2012. The Florida Department of Children and Families Abuse Hotline will begin to transfer non-caregiver abuse calls to the local Sheriff’s Office (Miami-Dade Police Department). The means to implement the statute changes were developed in partnership with the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida Department of Children and Families, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the Florida Police Chiefs Association.

The Memorandum of Understanding serves as the central agreement between these entities to alleviate the problem of circular reporting of abuse inadvertently created by Section 39.201(2)(b), Florida Statutes. Through this Agreement, duplication of efforts will be prevented to address the requirements of the statute changes.
