Body
Issue/Request:
An Ordinance authorizing the execution of a memorandum of understanding between the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the City of Lee’s Summit, Missouri for the use of Midwest High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Award Funds.

Key Issues:
This ordinance will authorize the Mayor of the City of Lee's Summit to enter into a MOU with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) for the continued assignment of one Lee's Summit Police Officer to the Kansas City FBI Combined Task Force. As part of the LSPD Officer's participation in the task force, the City of Lee's Summit will receive an award of $63,470.00 from the 2019 High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) funding that is administered locally through KBI.

In May 2019, the LSPD was awarded $63,470.00, which will be used to partially cover the salary of a detective currently assigned to the FBI Combined Task Force.
