Financial Impact

Trading in two (2) stand-alone rifle plates and two (2) kevlar helmets for a total credit of $1,460 towards the purchase of 16 ultra-light mil-spec SAPI with level III-A vest rifle plates enables the County to receive a favorable credit towards the new purchase. Funds are available through the Welfare Fraud Unit ($1,101.30), Early Fraud Unit ($667.00) and State Asseit Seizure Funds allocated to the District Attorney's Office ($2,675.70) for the purchase of the rifle plates.

REQUESTED ACTION (S)

a)    Request to declare two (2) lightweight stand-alone rifle plates and two (2) kevlar  
       helmets as surplus County property, and authorize the Purchasing Agent to 
       dispose of the rifle plates and kevlar helmets in the manner that best benefits the
       County

BACKGROUND INFO

The sixteen (16) level 3+ plates to be purchased offer the same level of officer protection with reduced weight, thereby lowering the risk of work related injuries.

The two (2) helmets requested to be declared surplus are "high cut" helmets which, in our evaluation, do not offer enough personnel protection compared to the Personnel Armor System Ground Troop helmets we currently have.

Trading in the two (2) rifle plates and two (2) kevlar helmets for $1,460 credit towards the purchase of 16 new rifle plates appears to be economically beneficial to the County, may reduce the chance of injury to employees, and will outfit all eight (8) Tehama County District Attorney's Office Investigators with improved safety equipment.
