City of Boise's 2015 Bill to Boise State For Police Services: $1.139M

by

The Boise City Council is poised to finalize an agreement under which the city will continue to provide law enforcement for Boise State University.

In June, Boise State updated its current services agreement for protection through Fiscal Year 2016. On Tuesday, Oct. 7, lawmakers will be asked to approve a FY 2015 charge to Boise State of $1.139 million.

The new deal will see the Boise Police Department continue to provide "customary and usual duties," including investigation and enforcement, traffic control and accident investigations. But the contract bumps up the hourly rate that the city of Boise charges for events coverage. Under the old contract, the Boise Police Department said it was "subsidizing" Boise State by absorbing more than $300,000 in costs to help police those events.

The agreement also sees BPD providing uniformed officers at an extra rate of $55 per hour for university events and $63 for non-university events.

The new agreement is the first of two renewals, with the next renewal expected to come in September for FY 2016.
