PARTIES The parties to this Agreement are the cities of Auburn, Federal Way, Kent, Renton, Seattle, and Tukwila, and the Port of Seattle. The Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team is assigned to the Drug Enforcement Administration ( "DEA ") Task Force. II. AUTHORITY This Agreement is entered into pursuant to Chapters 10.93, 39.34, and 53.08 of the Revised Code of Washington. III. PURPOSE The parties desire to establish and maintain a multi - jurisdictional team to effectively investigate and enforce the criminal laws relating to controlled substances. IV. FORMATION There is hereby established a multi - jurisdictional team to be hereafter known as the Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team ( "VNET "), the members of which shall be the cities of Auburn, Federal Way, Kent, Renton, Seattle, and Tukwila, and the Port of Seattle. The future admission or elimination of a jurisdiction as a member of VNET may be accomplished by an addendum to this Agreement. V. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Municipalities within the Puget Sound region have experienced an increase in urbanization and population densities. The ability to address crimes associated with controlled substances may stretch the resources of individual police department specialty units. Prior to the formation of VNET, law enforcement efforts directed at dealing with controlled substances crimes were, for the most part, conducted by law enforcement agencies working independently. A multi - jurisdictional effort to handle specific and complicated narcotic investigations has resulted in more effective pooling of personnel, the improved utilization of scarce funds, a reduction in the duplication of equipment, improved training, and a development of specialized expertise. The formation of VNET has resulted in improved services for all of the participating entities, increased safety for officers and the community, and improved cost effectiveness. VI. TEAM OBJECTIVES Personnel from each participating jurisdiction who are assigned to VNET will form a combined investigation team ( "Team "). Each police officer is assigned Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team Interlocal Agreement - 1 to the Team via this Agreement, and to the DEA through individual jurisdiction agreements with DEA. The objective of the VNET shall be to provide enhanced and more efficient use of personnel, equipment, budgeted funds, and training. The combined Team or individual detectives shall respond as able and as approved by the DEA Supervisor when requested by any of the participating agencies. VNET may be available to outside law enforcement agencies as permitted by laws relating to mutual aid and as approved by the DEA. VII. DURATION /TERMINATION The minimum term of this Agreement shall be one year, effective upon its adoption. This Agreement shall automatically renew, and VNET shall automatically continue in existence, for consecutive one year terms without action of the legislative bodies of the participating jurisdictions, and unless and until terminated pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. A jurisdiction may withdraw its participation in VNET by providing written notice of its withdrawal, and serving such notice upon each Executive Board member of the remaining jurisdictions. A notice of withdrawal shall become effective 90 days after service of the notice on all participating members. The withdrawal of an individual jurisdiction from VNET shall not result in the termination of VNET. In the event that VNET withdraws its participation in the DEA Task Force, this Agreement, and thus VNET, shall remain in effect unless terminated as provided herein. VNET may be terminated by a majority vote of the Executive Board or by action of the legislative bodies of the participating jurisdictions. Any vote for termination by the Executive Board shall occur only when the police chief of each participating jurisdiction is present at the meeting in which such vote is taken. VIII. TASK FORCE AGREEMENT Unless VNET is terminated, on an annual basis, each Board member shall affirm its jurisdiction's continued participation in VNET for the following year. Upon affirmation of the participation of each jurisdiction, VNET shall execute a task force agreement affirming the continuation of agency participation in VNET, and such task force agreement shall, on an annual basis, be forwarded to the US Department of Justice, Asset Forfeiture Money Laundering Section. IX. GOVERNANCE The affairs of the VNET shall be governed by an Executive Board ( "Board, ") whose members are composed of the police chief, or his /her designee, from each participating jurisdiction. One member of the Board shall be elected by the Board to serve as Chair. Each member of the Board shall have an equal vote on all Board decisions. All Board decisions shall be made by a majority vote of the Board members, or their designees, appearing at the meeting in Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team Interlocal Agreement - 2 which the decision is made. A majority of Board members, or their designees, must be present at each meeting for any action taken to be valid. The Board shall meet monthly, unless otherwise determined by the Board. The Chair, or any Board member, may call extra meetings as deemed appropriate. The Chair shall provide no less than 48 hours' notice of all meetings to all members of the Board; PROVIDED, that in emergency situations, the Chair may conduct a telephonic meeting or a poll of individual Board members to resolve any issues related to such emergency. X. PERSONNEL The following personnel shall serve at the pleasure of the Board. Personnel may be removed for any reason by majority vote of the Board. Team Supervisor: A Team Supervisor with the rank of sergeant or equivalent from his /her respective jurisdiction shall be appointed by the Board. The Team Supervisor shall act as the first level supervisor for the team and shall report directly to the VNET Chair. Office Manager: The VNET Office Manager shall be provided by the City of Kent on a reimbursable basis and shall work under the direction of the Board. The Office Manager reports directly to the Team Supervisor and is responsible for unit accounting, reports, office support, and other duties as appropriate. VNET Detectives: Each jurisdiction shall contribute one full -time commissioned officer to perform investigation work for the Team. Attorney: While King County is not a participating jurisdiction, King County will provide an attorney who shall be a de -facto member of the Team. The King County Prosecutor's Office shall select and interview candidates and make a recommendation to the Executive Board. The Executive Board will make the selection after considering the recommendation. The attorney will be responsible for reviewing and filing cases, wire orders, search warrants, the prosecution of forfeiture cases, and other prosecutorial services as needed. Employees of Contributing Jurisdictions: The personnel assigned to the Team shall be considered an employee of the contributing jurisdiction. That jurisdiction shall be solely and exclusively responsible for the compensation and benefits for that employee. All rights, duties, and obligations of the employer and the employee shall remain with that individual jurisdiction and none of the rights, duties, and obligation of the employing jurisdiction shall shift to VNET or any other participating jurisdiction. Each jurisdiction shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with all applicable laws with regard to employees, and with provisions of any applicable collective bargaining agreements and civil service rules and regulations of the employing jurisdiction. Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team Interlocal Agreement - 3 XI. EQUIPMENT, TRAINING, AND BUDGET Each participating jurisdiction shall provide the equipment of its participating VNET personnel. Each jurisdiction shall provide sufficient funds to update, replace, repair, and maintain the equipment and supplies utilized by its participating VNET personnel. Each jurisdiction shall provide sufficient funds to provide for the training of its participating VNET personnel. The equipment, supplies, and training provided by each jurisdiction to its personnel participating in VNET shall be equal to those provided by the other participating jurisdictions. The Board shall be responsible for purchasing VNET -owned equipment. Equipment purchased using VNET funds or forfeited property deemed owned by VNET shall remain the property of VNET unless the Board transfers it to a participating jurisdiction. The Board will ensure a record of the transaction is maintained. The Board must approve any joint capital expenditure for VNET equipment of $1,500.00 or more. Approval for capital expenditures of less than $1,500.00 may be authorized by the VNET Chair. XII. FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS VNET utilizes a Fiscal Agent for all account transactions and accounting. One of the participating jurisdictions will provide the services of the Fiscal Agent as approved by the Board. The VNET operating budget relies primarily on three funding sources: State and Federal Grants, VNET assets forfeited at the state and federal levels, and funds provided by the participating jurisdictions. Federal Grant funds are administered by the state and follow the state budget cycle of July 1 through June 30 of the following year. VNET shall request monthly reimbursements of expenses until the awarded amount is exhausted. Once the Federal Grant has been exhausted, forfeited assets will be used to pay expenses for the remainder of the budget cycle. VNET shall prepare a budget each year that estimates the grant funds available, and each participating jurisdiction shall provide VNET with the annual cost to assign an officer and other approved personnel to the unit. A jurisdiction's annual contribution is then divided by 12 and credited towards the monthly salary and benefits of the jurisdiction's participating personnel. All other expenses are paid for by VNET utilizing either Grant funds or forfeited assets. The Board shall agree upon a date each year by which time it will notify the participating jurisdictions of each jurisdictions' expected contribution. The DEA contribution to VNET includes providing office space, storage space, parking, and phone service at no cost to VNET jurisdictions. XIII. DISTRIBUTION OF SEIZURE FUNDS The VNET Board provides oversight of seized and forfeited assets via the Fiscal Agent. Forfeited assets may be distributed to participating agencies Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team Interlocal Agreement - 4 when deemed appropriate by the Board. The Board will endeavor to maintain adequate financial resources to fund ongoing operations of the VNET. XIV. DISTRIBUTION OF ASSETS UPON TERMINATION Upon termination of VNET, each participating jurisdiction shall retain sole ownership of the equipment purchased and provided for its participating VNET personnel. Any VNET assets shall be equally divided among the participating jurisdictions at the asset's fair market value upon termination. The value of the assets of VNET shall be determined by using commonly accepted methods of valuation. If two or more participating jurisdictions desire an asset, the final decision shall be made by arbitration (described below). Any property not claimed shall be declared surplus by the Board and disposed of pursuant to state law for the disposition of surplus property. Proceeds from the sale or disposition of any VNET property, shall, after payment of any and all costs of sale or debts of the jurisdiction, be equally distributed to those jurisdictions participating in VNET at the time of termination. In the event that one or more jurisdictions terminate their participation in VNET, but VNET continues to exist, the jurisdiction terminating participation shall be deemed to have waived any right or title to any property owned by VNET or to share in the proceeds at the time of termination. Arbitration pursuant to this section shall occur as follows: a. The jurisdictions interested in an asset shall select an Arbitrator to determine which jurisdiction will receive the property. If the jurisdictions cannot agree to an Arbitrator, the chiefs of the jurisdictions participating in VNET upon termination shall meet to determine who the Arbitrator will be. The Arbitrator may be any person not employed by the jurisdictions that desire the property. b. During a meeting with the Arbitrator, each jurisdiction interested in the property shall be permitted to make an oral and /or written presentation to the Arbitrator in support of its position. c. At the conclusion of the presentation, the Arbitrator shall determine which jurisdiction is to receive the property. The decision of the Arbitrator shall be final and shall not be the subject of appeal or review. XV. LIABILITY, HOLD HARMLESS, AND INDEMNIFICATION It is the intent of the participating jurisdictions to provide services of VNET without the threat of being subject to liability to one another, and to fully cooperate in the defense of any claims or lawsuits arising out of or connected with VNET actions that are brought against the jurisdictions. To this end, the participating jurisdictions agree to equally share responsibility and liability for the acts omissions of their participating personnel when acting in furtherance of this Agreement. In the event that an action is brought against any of the participating jurisdictions, each jurisdiction shall be responsible for an equal share of any award for or settlement of claims of damages, fines, fees, or Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team Interlocal Agreement - 5 costs, regardless of which jurisdiction or employee the action is taken against or which jurisdiction or employee is ultimately responsible for the conduct. The jurisdictions shall share equally regardless of the number of jurisdictions named in the lawsuit or claim or the number of officers from each jurisdiction named in the lawsuit or claim. This section shall be subject to the conditions and limitations set forth in subsections A through G below. A. Jurisdiction Not Involved in VNET Response. In the event a jurisdiction or its personnel were not involved in VNET response to the incident that gives rise to a claim or lawsuit, and judgment on the claim or lawsuit does not, in any manner, implicate the acts of a particular jurisdiction or its personnel, such jurisdiction shall not be required to share responsibility for the payment of the judgment or award. B. Intentionally Wrongful Conduct Beyond the Scope of Employment. Nothing herein shall require, or be interpreted to require indemnification or sharing in the payment of any judgment against any VNET personnel for intentionally wrongful conduct that is outside of the scope of employment of any individual or for any judgment of punitive damages against any individual or jurisdiction.

It is the intent of this Agreement that the jurisdictions act in good faith on behalf of each other in conducting settlement negotiations on liability claims or lawsuits so that, Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team Interlocal Agreement - 6 whenever possible, all parties agree with the settlement or, in the alternative, agree to proceed to trial. In the event a claim or lawsuit requires the sharing of liability, no individual jurisdiction shall be authorized to enter into a settlement agreement with a claimant or plaintiff unless all jurisdictions agree with the terms of the settlement. Any settlement made by an individual jurisdiction without the agreement of the remaining jurisdictions, when required, shall not relieve the settling jurisdiction from paying an equal share of any final settlement or award. F. No Waiver of Title 51 RCW . This section shall not be interpreted to waive any defense arising out of Title 51 RCW. G. Insurance. The failure of any insurance carrier or self- insured pooling organization to agree to or follow the terms of this section shall not relieve any individual jurisdiction from its obligations under this Agreement.
