SUMMARY

DATE:                                   June 01, 2021

TO:                                         Kent Cagle, City Manager

FROM:                                Charles F. Kimble, Chief of Police

SUBJECT:                        Purchase of Respirator Masks for the Police Department

BACKGROUND AND FINDINGS:

The Killeen Police Department purchases police duty gear, specifically respirator masks and mask filters, from Con10gency Consulting, LLC.   Duty gear is purchased under Texas SmartBuy contract #345 A2.  The City of Killeen is a member of this cooperative.

Respirator masks and filters are essential issue items for sworn police employees and allow those employees to continue to function as first responders and address public safety concerns during conditions where chemical disturbance control agents have been deployed.  They may also provide some protection against agents deployed against law enforcement personnel during those events.  The current respirator masks in use by the department are aging and becoming unserviceable.  It is also critical that the department equip its officers with serviceable equipment and stock sufficient replacement mask filters to be able to allow employees to change them out as needed, in the event of civil disturbances.

Current fiscal year expenditures are $25,794.40 for respirator masks and filters that were funded by JAG Grant monies.  Proposed expenses include approximately $73,625 for respirator masks, and $9,984 for replacement mask filters.  The total proposed purchases from Con10gency Consulting, LLC. for the current fiscal year will be $109,403.40.

This purchase will allow the department to complete an ongoing project to replace aging respirator masks for all sworn employees, and sufficiently stock replacement mask filters.
