Executive Summary:
An IGA for two bailiff positions that provide courthouse security services was adopted September 3, 2013. The bailiffs are responsible for the entrance screening process, providing security in the courtroom for contentious hearings, monitoring the security cameras in the courthouse, and patrol of the courthouse facility.

The decision to use Superior Court Bailiffs to be responsible for this service provides the Court with trained and experienced personnel without having to hire and train those individuals as City employees. 
Financial Impact:
The Flagstaff Municipal Court has been allocated the budget to support the two existing positions included within the original IGA.

One-time funding in the amount of $55,500 from Court Fees has been granted by the Council in fiscal year 2020-2021. Ongoing funding will be requested in fiscal year 2022 for the additional bailiff services.
Policy Impact:
Bailiffs are critical to the judicial branch because they maintain the safety and security of the courthouse facility. Bailiffs are necessary to operate the screening check point and provide security services to all patrons in the courthouse.
