Motor Pool Gas Policy Change

Through an evaluation of Motor Pool over the past year, Facility Services has made a few minor changes to current procedures that we want you to be aware of.

Effective July 1, 2014, all renters of Motorpool vehicles will be asked to return the vehicle with a full tank of gas. This will greatly increase the efficiency of administering the Motorpool program. As a reminder, the usage charge helps cover ongoing maintenance and repair costs of the vehicles. When you pick up your vehicle it will continue to come with a full tank of gas and there is no increase at this time in the usage charge ($1.00 per mile). Vehicles returned with a partial tank will be filled by Facility Services and the cost of $5.00 per gallon to fill the tank will be passed on to the renter.

Facility Services will continue to offer Enterprise vehicles as an option and encourage you to consider this as a viable alternative as the Motorpool fleet continues to age. As always, we are glad to be of assistance with your department’s travel needs.

Trinity Law School Presents 2014 God and Governing Award

ROCKLIN, CALIFORNIA (MAY 7, 2014) — Megan Crutchfield, 21, a senior at William Jessup University’s School of Public Policy in Rocklin, is the recipient of Trinity Law School’s 2014 God and Governing Award for her thesis project, “One Size Doesn’t Fit All: Reforming Megan’s Law.”

The God and Governing Award, named for Trinity Law School’s conference on virtue, ethics, and statesmanship of the same name, is presented to a graduating senior in the William Jessup University School of Public Policy who demonstrates an exemplary understanding of current global or national issues and presents solutions to such problems that are innovative, realistic, and promote Christian values and beliefs. The winner is determined through evaluation of their thesis paper, presentation, and defense, which took place during William Jessup University’s 9th Annual Public Policy Lecture Series on May 6 and 7.

“I’m passionate about Criminal Justice and wanted to learn more about Megan’s Law following a paper I wrote last year about it,” Crutchfield stated. She also cited her internship with the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Department in Martinez, California as a source of her interest in the topic.

Crutchfield received a $2,000 cash prize at the ceremony on Wednesday night. Should Crutchfield choose to attend Trinity Law School in the future, she will receive an additional $2,000 and a renewable 50% scholarship towards annual tuition.

A native of Lodi, California, Crutchfield will be graduating on May 17 with her bachelor’s degree in Public Policy with a concentration in Criminal Justice. Following graduation, she will be returning to Lodi to pursue a career in law enforcement.
