Title
Resolution to Approve a Purchase Order with MicroSurvey Software, Inc. and Leica Geosystems, Inc. for the Purchase of a Replacement of a Crash and Crime Scene Mapping System ($40,032.10)
Memorandum
The attached resolution requests approval to issue a purchase order to MicroSurvey Software, Inc. and to Leica Geosystems, Inc. for the purchase of a new Crash and Crime Mapping System and Crash/Crime Scene Diagramming License. Our existing crash scene mapping program by LTI is antiquated and does not have the capability of measuring crime scenes.

The Police department evaluated mapping systems from Faro, LTI, and, and Leica Geosystems. As a result, we recommend the Leica Geosystem TS13 Total Station solution as a cooperative MiDEAL purchase because the system capabilities use integrated Global Positioning System, which leads to better crash and crime scene mapping for evidentiary purposes. The Leica Geosystems solution will also allow for faster crash and crime scene mapping and will require less personnel to operate the system. The Disto S910 Bundle by MicroSurvey is recommended as a best source purchase for the reasons stated in the attached Best Source form. The Bundle is required to operate the system and its sole function is to interpret the data that is recorded by the mapping system. Additionally, The Disto S910 will allow detectives to map crime scenes indoors as well. The Michigan State Police use the Leico Geosystem TS13 Robotic Total Station as well and have been pleased with its capabilities.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: The Police Department has funds available in the FY20 Federal Equitable Forfeiture fund for the total cost of this purchase ($40,032.10). A ten percent (10%) contingency of $4,003 is also requested to cover additional expenses (SIM cards, tablets, etc.) necessary to use the system and this amount is also available in the FY20 Federal Equitable Forfeiture fund.
