Nearly $200,000.00 Grant Secured by Sheriff's Office

The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office has recently learned they have been awarded over $195,000.00 in grant funding from the Kansas Governor’s Grant Program and the Kansas Wireless Enhanced 911 Advisory Board.

The funds will allow the Sheriff’s Office to update their current Rescue Star telephone communications system, mapping software and mapping monitors.

With more and more residents relying on wireless phones, it’s vital to have up-to-date technology, allowing our emergency operators to pinpoint the location of a 911 caller and so they can dispatch the appropriate emergency services to the callers’ location in a more efficient manner.
