Title
Resolution to Approve a Contract with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office for Weapons Screening Services in the Ann Arbor Justice Center ($160,000.00)
Memorandum
Attached is a resolution requesting approval of a contract with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office for Weapon Screening Services in the Ann Arbor Justice Center for the 15th District Court. The Sheriff's Office currently provides these services.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: This item was budgeted for $160,000.00 in the Court's budget. There are no additional funds being requested at this time.

The Court has determined that it is in the best interests of the administration of justice to provide for the safety of the public, parties to litigation, judges, the magistrate and Court staff by performing weapons screening at the Ann Arbor Justice Center public entrance by qualified and experienced court security officers.

The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office maintains a staff of trained and experienced Court Security Officers who provide weapons screening services to courts in Washtenaw County.

Consequently, the Court requests Council approval for a contract with Washtenaw County to provide Sheriff's Office Court Security Officers to the Court to perform weapons screening and opening & closing corridor and stairwell checks at the Ann Arbor Justice Center during Court business hours at a cost of $28.57 per hour per Court Security Officer.

The Sheriff's Office and the Court estimate that up to three Court Security Officers will be assigned per day to the Court on staggered schedules to accommodate the ebb and flow of Court business during a typical business day. Because the proposed contract is a "per-hour" contract, the total daily or weekly number of hours worked may be fine-tuned to match visitor volume and reduced or expanded Court business hours.
