Over the last several years, the Chino Police Department has directly participated in investigations or prosecutions that have resulted in a federal forfeiture and, therefore, an equitable share of the net proceeds of the forfeiture are returned to the City.  Forfeiture funds can only be designated for law enforcement use and must be used to increase or supplement the resources of the receiving law enforcement agency. Forfeiture funds cannot be used to replace or supplant the resources of the Department.



In a recent review of the City's security camera system, it was identified that there is currently a camera in place at City Yards that is mounted on a pole that depicts the perimeter wall of the facility.  This wall borders City Yards and Villa Park.  The Police Department would like to mount an additional camera to this pole that would provide camera footage of Villa Park. Other locations were we would mount cameras would include Monte Vista Park, Aguirre Square and the Community Building. The video feeds would be accessed from the Watch Commander's office, as it would be integrated with the Video Insight and Genetec programs.  The camera best suited for this deployment would be a Pan-Tilt-Zoom because it would provide camera footage of a large area with the ability to zoom into different locations.  These cameras would assist our department in our crime fighting efforts in our public parks and other high traffic areas.  This purchase would include four (4) outdoor PZT cameras, transformers, camera connections and installation.  Additionally, we will purchase signage to be posted at each location to notify the public that the area is under surveillance.  Any remainder of funds following these purchases would be used for new equipment, the replacement of non-operational equipment and/or training.
