Authorize the Purchase of High Threat Body Armor from Tyr Tactical

As part of the 2017 budget, the City Council allocated $36,000 to develop and deploy an Emergency Response Team (SWAT). Due to the emergency relocation in 2017 the department had to use those funds to facilitate the move to its temporary location. The police department developed and implemented the Tactical Patrol Officer Program intended to bridge between when a fully deployable team will actually deploy and when they will not (moderate risk vs. high risk).  

In 2018 staff began researching various manufacturers testing and evaluating systems, meeting with other tactical teams around the state and metropolitan area, in an effort to determine what works and what doesn’t. Staff repeatedly returned to one manufacture and system that has tremendous support by its users around the state, Tyr Tactical.

The 2019 Capital Improvement Budget allocates $26,000 for the purchase of "Critical Safety Equipment".




Action
Make a motion to authorize the purchase of High Threat Body Armor from Tyr Tactical for a total cost of $10,120.25
Recommendation
The City Manager, Police Chief and Finance Director recommend approval.
