Resolution relative to acceptance and funding of a 2018 Homeland Security Armored Vehicle Grant.

This resolution authorizes the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) to accept and fund a Homeland Security Armored Vehicle Grant from the State of Wisconsin Emergency Management Department of Military Affairs (DMA), in the amount of $225,000 with a city share of $0, and a grantor share of $225,000. The purpose of this funding is to purchase a new armored “Bearcat” vehicle for the purpose of responding to high-risk situations and protecting personnel. The armored vehicle provides ballistic protection from high-caliber rifles that would allow personnel to respond safely to high-risk situations.

Whereas, The operation of this grant from 10/15/18 to 11/29/2019 would cost $225,000, 100% would be provided by the grantor; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Police Department shall accept this grant without further approval unless the terms of the grant change as indicated in Section 304-81, Milwaukee Code of Ordinances; and, be it
