Consent Agenda Item for August 2, 2005
Law Enforcement Trust Fund Expenditure
Orange County Sheriffs Office Request
The Orange County Sheriffs Office is requesting to spend $42,177 from the Law Enforcement Trust
Fund for the following purposes:
1. Blade Tech Holsters from Taser International - $10,943. These holsters will replace the
current issued cross draw holsters, which are known to fall off a deputy's gun belt when the
deputy is running, and also allows a suspect to easily grab the Taser. The new holsters are
made of a hard shell material that prevents the officer safety issues cited above, as well as
not allowing the Taser cartridge to become detached inside the holster from normal wear.
2. Ballistic Entry Vest from U.S. Surplus Sales - $14,210. These ballistic entry vests will be
utilized by ten (10) members of the Emergency Response Team's (ERT's) Special Response
Team who will be tasked with going into any type of weapon of mass destruction event with
SWAT to clear and protect the Fire Rescue Department personnel.
3. Helmets from PVPCommunications, Inc. - $17,024. This equipment will be utilized byour
Motors Squad to bring the helmets they are required to wear up to date. These helmets will
also be equipped with an updated communications package that will help deputies to
communicate more efficiently during radio communication.

$42,177 from the Law Enforcement Trust Fund to purchase
equipment as follows:
Blade Tech Holsters from Taser
International ($10,943), Ballistic Entry Vest from U.S. Surplus
