BACKGROUND

The State Budget Act of 2010 has provided funds from the Local Safety and Protection Account (LSPA) in the State Transportation Fund to be available for purposes of the Citizens' Option for Public Safety (COPS) Grant. The COPS grant funds are allocated in accordance with the proportionate share of the State's total population that resides in each county and city.  Each city is guaranteed a minimum of $100,000 by Government Code Section 30061 and any additional amounts are contingent on vehicle license fee collections. 

On August 10, 2017, the County of San Bernardino received a disbursement from the Citizens' Option for Public Safety Enhancing Law Enforcement Activities Subaccount (COPS ELEAS) for fiscal year 2010-2011 to be distributed amongst San Bernardino County agencies. On August 21, 2017, the City of Chino received an additional allocation to the 2011 COPS Grant in the amount of $1,361.06. Acceptance of these additional funds will allow for the purchase of upgraded equipment and new technology for the police department.

A provision of the program allows monies to be directed toward funding costs related to salaries and expenses for non-sworn personnel dedicated to supporting front line police operations, along with expenditures dedicated to upgrading equipment, purchasing new technology for sworn personnel, and upgrading police vehicles.  Since 2001, the City Council has approved the continued funding of this grant's purpose.
