Prince George County, Fort Lee To Participate in IGSA Signing Ceremony
On Friday, February 8, 2019 at 11:30am, Fort Lee and Prince George County will hold an Intergovernmental Support Agreement (IGSA) signing ceremony at the Prince George County Emergency Operations Center, 6520 Laurel Spring Road, Prince George, VA 23875. Col. Hollie J. Martin, Garrison Commander, Fort Lee, and Mr. Percy C. Ashcraft, County Administrator, Prince George County, will execute the partnership document.
The Fort Lee Police Department initiated discussions with the County to enter into a local agreement, which would add Fort Lee to the County's Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and call handling system. This agreement will grant Fort Lee access to a newer CAD system and grant additional benefits to emergency calls on base. The IGSA will also improve interagency cooperation with the two entities sharing the same system and call handling equipment. The contract is for a period of five (5) years with the ability to renew for successive one (1) year periods for four (4) additional years.
There will be an increased cost in expenditures during the contract term, but Fort Lee will be reimbursing Prince George County for 100% of the expenditures. The County will maintain the shared software and hardware installed in the County, while Fort Lee will maintain any equipment and software installed for Fort Lee staff. This partnership will provide a closer working relationship for the Public Safety groups of both organizations.
