Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of a Grant Adjustment Notice for the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) - FY 2012 State Homeland Security Program (SHSP).
BACKGROUND
On October 23, 2013, the Commissioners Court accepted a grant award for the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP) -
FY 2012 State Homeland Security Program (SHSP). The grant totaled $38,185 with no match required. The purpose of the project is to purchase and install surveillance cameras around the perimeter of the Nueces County Courthouse/County Jail complex to monitor and record activity near the buildings and in adjacent parking areas.
DISCUSSION
On February 26, 2014, the Commissioners Court ratified the submission of a grant project proposal for additional funds available through SHSP. The project’s title is the the Nueces County Rural Fire & EMS Interoperability Project – Phase One. The purpose is to provide access to the consolidated public safety answering point for all Nueces County rural fire and EMS providers. The project will provide interoperability with responding law enforcement agencies and mutual aid departments already fully operating on the County radio system. Each of the departments will now be able to directly contact the County Emergency Operations Center through primary and back radio systems during major emergencies, ensuring continuity of operations and a coordinated disaster response/recovery effort.

The project was approved for $20,000 with no required match. This amount will be added to the previous award amount ($38,185), making the grant adjustment notice total $58,185.
