5. AMENDMENT TO THE 2016-17 MUNICIPAL LAW ENFORCEMENT SERVICES AGREEMENT FOR ONE ADDITIONAL MOTOR DEPUTY

As referenced in Santa Clarita 2020, one of the City Council’s top priorities is to develop a comprehensive Traffic Safety Plan (Plan).  The Plan released in September 2016 focuses on reducing traffic collisions on the 65 miles of roadways in Santa Clarita and rests primarily with the Traffic Unit.  To more effectively accomplish the mission of the Plan, the City and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) would like to amend the 2016-17 Law Enforcement Services Contract.  The contract amendment would expand the Traffic Unit by adding an additional Motor Deputy.  With this increase, LASD will also provide an overhead Motor Sergeant at no additional cost to the City.
