TITLE
RESOLUTION RETROACTIVELY AUTHORIZING THE EXECUTION OF A “STATE AND LOCAL HIGH INTENSITY DRUG TRAFFICKING AREA TASK FORCE” AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION OF THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND MIAMI-DADE COUNTY THROUGH THE MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT; AND AUTHORIZING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE ACTION TO EXECUTE AMENDMENTS, RENEWALS, AND EXTENSIONS AND TO EXERCISE THE CANCELLATION PROVISIONS CONTAINED THEREIN

BODY
WHEREAS, this Board desires to accomplish the purposes outlined in the accompanying Memorandum, a copy of which is incorporated herein by reference,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board finds it is in the best interest of Miami-Dade County to retroactively approve the execution of a State and Local High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force Agreement between the Drug Enforcement Administration of the U.S. Department of Justice and Miami-Dade County, through the Miami-Dade Police Department, in substantially the form attached hereto and made a part hereof; and reimburses Miami-Dade County for certain costs associated with the County’s performance under the agreement; and authorizes the County Mayor or County Mayor’s Designee to execute the Agreement for and on behalf of Miami-Dade County, and to execute any amendments, renewals and extensions of same, and to exercise the cancellation provisions contained in the Agreement;


HEADER
DATE:

TO: Honorable Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa
and Members, Board of County Commissioners

FROM: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

SUBJECT: Resolution Retroactively Authorizing An Agreement Between The Drug Enforcement Agency Of The U.S. Department Of Justice and Miami-Dade County

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached resolution retroactively authorizing the County Mayor or County Mayor’s Designee to execute the State and Local High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area 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 the police officer assigned to the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force for expenses necessary to conduct investigations concerning illicit drug traffic in Miami-Dade County. This Agreement is effective October 1, 2012, and will remain in effect through September 30, 2013, subject to the availability of funds.

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

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The Agreement specifies that reimbursements will be paid by the Drug Enforcement Administration. Also, 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 officer assigned to the Task Force.

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

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
Retroactive authorization is necessary as the Agreement was not provided with enough time to submit the Resolution to the Board of County Commissioners to begin October 1, 2012. The purpose of this Agreement is to provide for the participation of the Miami-Dade Police Department officer as a member of the State and Local High Intensity Drug Traffic Area Task Force of the Drug Enforcement Administration, and also the reimbursement of overtime costs for the police officer assigned full-time to this Task Force. Overtime costs support activities necessary for investigations concerning illicit drug traffic in Miami-Dade County. 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 addressing illicit drug traffic which affects the health, welfare, and safety of the people of Miami-Dade County.
