RECOMMENDATION
Ratify the execution of a Sub-Recipient Award with the Texas Department of Public Safety for the FY 2012 Operation Stonegarden grant program.
BACKGROUND
The FY 2012 Operation Stonegarden Grant (OPSG-12) Program from the United States Department of Homeland Security provides funding to eligible localities to enhance cooperation and coordination between federal and local law enforcement agencies in a joint mission to secure the United States borders. Funds can be used for law enforcement overtime and certain law enforcement operating expenses, including equipment, related to border security operations.

On April 11, 2012, the Commissioners Court authorized the submission of an application for the FY2012 grant opportunity. The FY 2012 application included the following agencies: Nueces County Sheriff's Office, Nueces County Constable Precincts 3 & 5, Driscoll Police Department, Robstown Police Department, and the Corpus Christi Police Department. Sheriff Jim Kaelin will be the grant project officer. The budget included operational overtime, fringe benefits, mileage, vehicles, laptops, radars, and other related equipment.
DISCUSSION
The original application was approximately $1.9 million; however, the County received notice that only $600,000 in funding would be available. So the budget was revised to reflect the new level of funding. The State has chosen to award the grant according to tactical periods.

This period’s award is $129,977.90. The grant period runs from September 1, 2012 to February 28, 2014. There is no cash match required for this grant.
