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:

Section 1. Approves the Memorandum of Agreement between Miami-Dade County and the Florida Department of Corrections in substantially the form attached and hereto and made a part hereof.

HEADER
Date:

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

From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Resolution Authorizing the Execution of A Memorandum of Agreement Between The Florida Department of Corrections and Miami-Dade County

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
RECOMMENDATION:
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached resolution approving and authorizing the execution of the Memorandum of Agreement between the Florida Department of Corrections and Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department for the statewide victim notification and information service.

SCOPE
The impact of this Memorandum of Agreement is countywide.

FISCAL IMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE
The fiscal impact to Miami-Dade County is minimal as associated costs with the agreement are paid by the Florida Department of Corrections and any ancillary support will be accomplished with in-house staff.

TRACK RECORD/MONITOR
The responsibility of victim notification is managed by Commander Frank Brophy of the Information Services Bureau, Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
BACKGROUND:
Since 1999, the Florida Department of Corrections has offered a toll-free automated inmate information and notification service. In 2001 the Florida Legislature authorized funding to expand state’s Victim Information Network Everyday service to all of Florida's County jails. The Victim Information and Notification Everyday service is a 24 hours a day, seven days a week, online resource that provides search capability for in-custody inmates of the Florida Department of Corrections and any of the participating Florida County jails. This free, anonymous and confidential service offers Floridians the ability to register and be notified, by telephone, e-mail or TTY, about changes in the custody status of inmates within Florida's participating County jails and the Florida Department of Corrections. Information provided includes an inmate’s current location, release date, when placed in a work release facility, transferred to another jurisdiction, or dies in custody.

Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department has been a participating agency of the Victim Information Network Everyday service for many years. For continued participation the attached Memorandum of Agreement must be executed between the Florida Department of Corrections and the Miami-Dade County to provide the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation access to the information network.
