The Brown County Sheriff’s Office was recently notified they had been selected to receive $45,050.00 as part of the Federal Edward J. Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.

Sheriff Merchant stated 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 data bases allowing access to timely information such as Amber or Silver Alerts.
