An ordinance authorizing the approval of an Interlocal Cooperation Contract (ICC) between the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) for the purpose of transitioning the Texas Anti-Gang (TAG) program Fiscal Agent responsibilities from SAPD to DPS. The agreement will commence upon execution and is for an amount not to exceed $970,890.00, reimbursable from DPS.
