Council tables law enforcement contract

DAVENPORT — City Council promptly tabled an agreement for an updated law enforcement service contract between the City and Sheriff’s Office Wednesday, May 22.

The current 4-year contract expires at the end of the year, making 2024 a negotiation year where the City must once again decide whether it will continue to contract with the Sheriff’s Office for law enforcement services.

The current contract states Davenport patrol area deputies shouldn’t transport or attend appointments of inmates being held by jurisdictions outside the city, which the county said limits the use of those deputies.
