Approving the Amendment to the A Community Outreach Program Agreement for Police Services for the Public Housing Agency.

 

Body

WHEREAS, since 1991 the PUBLIC HOUSING AGENCY OF THE CITY OF SAINT PAUL (“PHA”), and the CITY OF SAINT PAUL (“City”), acting by and through its DEPARTMENT OF POLICE (“Police Department”)  have collaborated to provide the community policing program known as A Community Outreach Program (“ACOP”) to create a drug-and crime-free environment and to provide for the safety and protection of residents, employees and visitors in public housing developments; and

 

 

WHEREAS, the PHA and the City have entered into an Agreement for Supplemental Police Services (“Agreement”) pursuant to Minnesota Statute Section 471.59, for the provision of police services to improve the safety, security and livability of the PHA’s public housing properties.  The Agreement is valid through March 31, 2021.

WHEREAS, the City, by and through its Police Department, desires to continue its commitment of providing effective police services at PHA locations in accordance with this Amended Agreement;

 

 

RESOLVED, the Saint Paul City Council hereby authorizes the Saint Paul Police Department to enter into the attached Amended Agreement.
