The City intends on using the grant money to fund activities conducted by the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Community Interaction Team, which strives to enhance community safety.
Grant funds will primarily be used to pay overtime hours for the Community Interaction Team that will be implementing these programs. In total, approximately 500 overtime hours would be funded by the grant. Grant funding will also be spent to purchase a video camera and wireless audio system that will assist officers with surveillance and sting operations.
The City is asking for public comments concerning the proposal. Those interested in commenting should contact Tess Simgen, Community Services Analyst for the City, at 661/255-4956, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
