Gang assessment initiative grant

Gang assessment initiative grant

Sheriff Mades requested approval of the Washington County Gang Assessment Initiative grant from the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention in the amount of $15,000.00. Approval was needed in order for the Finance Division to continue and add the line item for disbursement purposes.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office has been designated to lead Washington County's Gang Assessment Initiative. An assessment committee comprised of people from diverse backgrounds and disciplines will meet bi-monthly to collect data, assess and evaluate information, and develop strategies for reducing gang activity.
Grant funds will be used to pay the salaries of committee members, rent meeting space and equipment, and pay for media expenses relating to the gathering of gang information. The measure was approved by unanimous vote.
