SUBJECT: Resolution Authorizing Execution of Memorandum of Understanding and Agreements between the United
States Marshals Service and Miami-Dade County

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached resolution authorizing the County Mayor or County Mayor’s Designee to execute memoranda of understanding and agreements between the United States Marshals Service of the United States Justice Department and Miami-Dade County, through the Miami-Dade Police Department. These agreements provide authority to the United States Marshals Service to pay for the police officer(s) assigned to the United States Marshals Service for expenses necessary for the purpose of locating and apprehending local, state, and federal fugitives. The specific agreement is effective upon signature by Miami-Dade County and will remain in effect for the duration of the Miami-Dade Police Department’s participation in the task force and contingent upon the availability of funds.

Scope
The memoranda of understanding will provide reimbursement to the Miami-Dade Police Department for the costs of sworn personnel assigned to these investigations in partnership with the United States Marshals Service and also the vehicles assigned to the identified personnel. The investigations are conducted throughout Miami-Dade County, and when necessary, outside the County and also the State.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
There is no fiscal impact to the County.

Track Record/Monitor
The entity involved is the Miami-Dade Police Department’s Sheriff Services Bureau/Warrants Section. Reinaldo Valdes, Major, Sheriff Services Bureau, will track and monitor the agreement. As other task forces are established with the United States Marshals Services, the respective Majors or Command Staff, will track and monitor those memoranda of understanding.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
In the conduct of day-to-day operations, the Miami-Dade Police Department works together with the United States Marshals Service to investigate and arrest, as part of joint law enforcement operations, persons who have active state and federal warrants for their arrest. The intent of the joint effort is to investigate and apprehend local, state, and federal fugitives. This memorandum of understanding provides a mechanism to reimburse Miami-Dade County the costs of assigned personnel, and related equipment, especially vehicles. In addition, the memoranda of understanding may include other documents, such as operational procedures, and agreements which are implemented to govern the partnership. Through these partnerships, the Miami-Dade Police Department is able to enhance the public safety of this community for the benefit of our citizens and visitors and to reduce violent crime.
