RESOLUTION NO. 822

 

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE APPROVING AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY AND UNIVERSITY PLACE SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR A SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER

 

 

WHEREAS, since shortly after incorporation, the City and the University Place School District have partnered in a School Resource Officer (SRO) program which places a police officer in schools during the school year; and

 

WHEREAS, in many jurisdictions, including University Place, assigning an officer to schools has many benefits, including addressing and deterring criminal conduct in schools, dealing with custody issues which occur in schools, and generally significantly reducing the need for patrol officers to respond to calls for service from schools, particularly high schools, which can generate a significant number of police calls; and

WHEREAS, to maximize the effectiveness of our patrol shifts, the SRO's school focus is very valuable in addressing most school calls and allowing patrol shifts to focus on other matters; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposed Agreement with the U.P. School District provides that the City’s Police Department will be allowed to utilize the SRO to supplement the City’s patrol shift as necessary during the school year; and

 

WHEREAS, because of this right to utilize the SRO as a patrol officer, the City and School District split the cost of the SRO; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Council and the City and School District administrations believe continuing the joint SRO program is in the best interests of the community,

 

            NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, AS FOLLOWS:

 

Section 1.   Incorporation.  The recitals are hereby incorporated herein as if set forth in full.

 

Section 2.   Agreement Approved. The Agreement with University Place School District for a School Resource Officer is hereby approved.

 

Section 3.   Effective Date.  This Resolution shall be effective immediately upon adoption by the City Council.

 

            ADOPTED BY THE CITY COUNCIL ON NOVEMBER 21, 2016.
