College moves to finalize sheriff’s bid for takeover

FAIRFIELD — It looks like the final vote as to whether to allow a complete takeover of the campus police department by the Solano County Sheriff’s Office will finally hit the governing board agenda Aug. 20.

The proposal has seen some fits and starts for more than a year.

Yulian Ligioso, the college’s vice president of finance and administration, at a governing board study session, presented a brief cost comparison study between the sheriff’s proposal and returning to a campus police department. He used the average of three local community colleges that have campus police departments in the study: Marin, Napa Valley and Santa Rosa. He compared the four key positions: non-sworn, officer, supervisor/sergeant and chief/lieutenant, with comparable sheriff’s positions.

As an example, the three-college average monthly salary for the chief/lieutenant position was calculated at $8,954 with the top college coming in at $10,703 and the Sheriff’s Office figures at $9,913. However, the three-college average for monthly salary for a sworn officer is $5,517 with the top salary being $5,778. The sheriff’s figure for the equivalent is significantly higher at $7,564.

Ligioso estimates that it would cost about $1.2 million a year to bring back the campus police staffed at previous levels enjoyed during a more robust economic time, which includes nine full-time employees. The recommended sheriff’s proposed model includes five full-time employees and an additional 8,296 part-time hours for $971,354 – a lower figure than $980,392 presented in July.

While the campus police model gives more employees, the sheriff’s model gives more hours for the proposed contracted cost, Ligioso said.

The ability to move forward with the proposed takeover by the Sheriff’s Office was made possible by a settlement in May between the college and the Operating Engineers Local 39. The agreement involved an unfair practice charge before the Public Employment Relations Board concerning the prospect of contracting out the college district’s police department.

    I note that the term Salary is used. Does that also include other costs such as retirement, medical, workers comp, vacation/holiday/sick leave? I don't think so or it would be much higher. An informed choice can't be made until ALL of the cost are known. The County/Sheriff's Office is just not going to overlook these employee expenses and will be sure to add them into any contract and will not take a loss to provide services.
