Brown County Sheriff’s Office receives grant
Submitted by Sheriff John Merchant
The Brown County Sheriff’s Office recently was notified they had been selected to receive $45,050 as part of the Federal Edward J. Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.
Sheriff John Merchant said that the grant would be used to fund the purchase of 3-Mobile Automatic License Plate readers. The License plate readers will enhance officer safety and help officers identify stolen vehicles and vehicles of interest more readily. The system can be live linked to law enforcement databases allowing access to timely information such as Amber or Silver Alerts.
