Explanation
This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Public Safety to enter into a grant agreement with Alvis 360 in support of special duty officer services in the Driving Park neighborhood.

The Driving Park neighborhood on the Near East side experiences a crime rate that is disproportionately higher than many other city neighborhoods. In an effort to reduce crime, strengthen police-community relations, and improve the neighborhood profile for ongoing economic and residential redevelopment, Columbus City Council and the Mayor intend to provide funding to support special duty officers in the neighborhood.

Alvis 180 has demonstrated their dedication to the Driving Park neighborhood, most recently with the creation of a community treatment center on Livingston Avenue. With additional support of $20,000 from the Buckeye Community Hope Foundation, Alvis 180 will be able to implement special duty service in the area.

Fiscal Impact: Funding is available within the Public Safety Initiatives subfund and in the general fund.

Emergency action is requested to avoid any delay in initiating special duty patrol services in the Driving Park neighborhood.
