SUMMARY:

 

Acceptance of the donation of architectural and engineering plans, permit processing, labor, materials and construction of two training structures from Orange County Sheriff's Advisory Council will allow the Sheriff-Coroner Department to construct a church and school training structure in order to provide additional training for its officers who may respond to crisis situations at a church or a school location.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

 

The Sheriff-Coroner Department (Sheriff) operates Laser Village, a state-of-the-art firearms training complex situated at Sheriff's Katella Training Facility.  At this facility, Sheriff provides its officers with hands-on training to effectively address a variety of crisis scenarios.  As media reports of active shooters at schools and churches are more prevalent, the Orange County (OC) Sheriff's Advisory Council desires to donate architectural and engineering plans, permit processing, materials and construction of two training structures to assist Sheriff's officers in responding to situations at schools and churches. 

 

The OC Sheriff's Advisory Council was formed in 1979 as a California non-profit corporation for the purpose of supporting local law enforcement.  The mission of OC Sheriff's Advisory Council is to “support the law enforcement community of Orange County when the necessary funds needed to support their missions are restricted or limited.”  In the 40 years since OC Sheriff's Advisory Council was founded, over $3 million has been contributed for a safer Orange County.  Approximately 560 business and community leaders are members of the OC Sheriff's Advisory Council.

 

The OC Sheriff's Advisory Council would now like to construct a school training structure (approximately 5,000 square feet [sf]) and a church training structure (approximately 2,000 sf).  The estimated cost of the labor and construction for both buildings is valued at approximately $984,000. 

 

The OC Sheriff's Advisory Council would also like to cover the cost of the engineering and architectural planning, as well as permit processing.  The estimated cost of the engineering and architectural planning is approximately $14,000.  The estimated cost of the permit processing is approximately $2,000.

 

Additionally, the OC Sheriff's Advisory Council will handle any administration (e.g., contract development and management) necessary to construct the two buildings at no cost to County.

 

Sheriff desires to accept these donations from the OC Sheriff's Advisory Council as they will allow Sheriff to provide additional training for its officers who may respond to crisis situations at a church or a school location.  Once constructed, Sheriff will be responsible for the maintenance of the structures.

 

Prior to any construction services being performed, Sheriff's staff will work with County Counsel on an acceptable agreement, with County standard terms and conditions including indemnification and insurance requirements, with the OC Sheriff's Advisory Council's participating members who will be performing the donated services and construction.  Additionally, Sheriff's staff will ensure that all appropriate permits are received and will oversee the construction project, consulting with County Counsel, OC Public Works and CEO Real Estate as necessary.

 

In accordance with the Quitclaim Deed dated June 7, 1962 and subsequent First Amendment to Quitclaim Deed dated December 8, 2015 (Deed), the Deed requires the County to give notice to the Orange County Peace Officers Association (OCPOA) of proposed major changes to the Katella Training Facility.  Sheriff has given notice to OCPOA in compliance with the Deed’s requirements.

 

Sheriff requests that the Board of Supervisors accept the donation of architectural and engineering plans, contract management, permit processing, labor, materials and construction of two training structures, with an estimated value of $1 million, from the OC Sheriff's Advisory Council.  The donation will be subject to the County’s review and approval of all plans and specifications and compliance with County policy, including County contract terms and conditions for similar projects.

 

Compliance with CEQA:  The proposed action is categorically exempt from CEQA, pursuant to sections 15301 and 15303 of the CEQA Guidelines, because it concerns the alteration of an existing public facility through construction of a limited number of new, small facilities or structures, with no expansion of current or former use.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPACT:

 

The donation will result in no negative financial impact to the County.  The Sheriff-Coroner Department will be responsible for the maintenance costs of the structures, once built.
