    Facebook said it is willing to pick up the tab for security near its Menlo Park headquarters.

    The social network is offering to put up $200,000 a year for a full-time police officer who would work out of the city's Belle Haven substation. The company has pledged to fund the position for three years, according to the Mercury News.

    The Menlo Park City Council will consider the offer on Tuesday.

    Last summer, city leaders approved a three-year lease for the new substation.

    Facebook pledged to pay the rent over those three years and offered another $215,000 to overhaul the building.
