BARROW COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
SEEKS INPUT IN NEW COMMUNITY SURVEY
The 2014 Community Survey will be accessible beginning on July 7, 2014 and will be available through July 31, 2014. The survey contains a total of twenty-seven questions, most of which require multiple choice answers. Citizens will also be able to leave comments and suggestions for ways to improve or enhance law enforcement service. The survey can be accessed through the host website www.surveymonkey.com/s/barrowsheriffsurvey2014
Paper copies of the survey will be available at the Sheriff’s Office for anyone who prefers to complete the survey by hand.
Participation in the survey will be greatly appreciated.
The US Department of Justice has released its 2014 Edward Byrne JAG Grant. They have allotted $20,460 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 the grant funding to purchase critically needed duty gear such as holsters, duty belts, hand cuffs, handcuff cases, magazine pouches, OC holders, and belt keepers.
Additionally, we will be purchasing forensic evidence collection equipment, which will aid in gathering evidence which will also aid in the prosecution of crimes. We will be purchasing a number of latent fingerprint collection kits and a UFED Touch Ultimate All-Inclusive Mobile Forensic Solution system.
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 Colt AR15/M4 variant carbine.
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.
