Anderson Co. Sheriff's Office applies for COPS Grant

ANDERSON CO., May 21, 2013--Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor has expressed gratitude to the Commissioner’s Court for their support in allowing the Sheriff’s Office to apply for a Community Oriented Policing Service, or COPS Grant. Anderson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the addition of two Narcotics Investigators.

If approved, the Grant would pay 75% of the additional salaries for the first three years. The Sheriff’s Office would pay 25% for the first three years, and then assume responsibility for the total salaries as of the fourth year.

Sheriff Taylor spoke with KYYK’s Gary Richards about the Grant, and potential resulting improvements. Click below to hear interview.
