Contract Goals

 

City of Mesquite will use contract goals to meet any portion of the overall goal that the recipient does not project being able to meet using RN means. Contract goals are established so that, over the period to which the overall foal applies, they will cumulatively result in meeting any portion of the recipient’s overall goal that is not projected to be met through the use of RC Means.

 

City of Mesquite will establish contract goals only on those DOT-assisted contracts that have subcontracting possibilities. It need not establish a contract goal on every such contract, and the size of the contract goals will be adapted to the circumstances of each such contract (e.g., type and location of work and availability of DBE’s to perform the particular type of work).

We will express our contract goals as a percentage of the Federal share of a DOT-assisted contract.

Mesquite Police Department to host Coffee with a Cop on Wednesday, October 4th

Mesquite Police Department to host Coffee with a Cop on Wednesday, October 4th

Program offers opportunity to meet local officers, discuss community issues 

Mesquite NV This Wednesday, October 4th, officers from the Mesquite Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee or hot chocolate. 

All community members are invited to attend.  The event begins at 07:00 a.m. on 10/04/17 at Jack in the Box Restaurant located on Sandhill Blvd. 

 Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Mesquite’s neighborhoods. 

The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

 “We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,” said Mesquite Police Chief Troy Tanner. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the country, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve. 

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.
