The County of Oconee may receive $23,253 from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant program, administered by the U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs.
The purpose of this program is to assist local units of government in reducing crime and improving public safety through grants that increase resources available to law enforcement agencies. The Oconee County Sheriff's Office intends to use the funds, which do not require county match money, to purchase hand held radios and mobile tough books.
If anyone wishes to make recommendations or comments about how these funds should be spent, please contact the Sheriff's Office in one of the following ways:
Call Chief Deputy Kevin Davis at (864) 638-4118 or write to:
