Welcome to the Barrow County Sheriff's Office!
The US Department of Justice has released its 2015 Edward Byrne JAG Grant. They have allotted $19,349 in available federal grant funding for the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office. We have applied for the grant.
The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office will be using a portion of the grant funding to purchase critically needed computer equipment, which will be used in a variety of areas within the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office.
A portion of the funding will also be used to purchase a cyanoacrylate fuming chamber to greatly enhance our ability to gather evidence. As a result, this will aid in the prosecution of crimes. We will also be purchasing a crime scene canopy and a crime scene shielding system to help preserve crime scenes for analysis and investigation.
Additionally, in an effort to enhance our training and ability to effectively respond to the threat of active shooter situations, we will be purchasing a ProTech Intruder ballistic shield and a tactical tool kit to aid in tactical situations. We will also be purchasing a quantity of training cartridges for our existing TASER ECD devices.
The remaining funding will be used to purchase equipment to aid the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Enforcement Unit in its efforts to investigate serious and fatal motor vehicle crashes. Items include multiple measuring devices and a digital camera. All items will be used in the collection of evidence.
The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office welcomes comments from the public regarding this federal grant. If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact Captain R. A. White at (770) 307-3080, extension 1451.
