SHERIFF'S OFFICE AMONG SEVERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES AWARDED NEW EQUIPMENT: Jefferson County, Arkansas – November 8th 2013 – Thanks to the Criminal Justice Institute (CJI), the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office was among several other law enforcement agencies in the state to receive new Dell laptops and body cameras for their concerted efforts during participation in Click it or Ticket and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, two annual nationwide traffic enforcement-related campaigns.
Lieutenant Randy Dolphin, Jr., Assistant Division Commander for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) Uniform Patrol Division was on hand to accept the equipment from CJI Law Enforcement Liaisons Timothy Hibbs and Mr. Gary Miller.
The Arkansas State Police Highway Safety Office provides National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) grant funds to support the Law Enforcement Liaison Project. One facet of this program is to provide law enforcement liaisons who promote the year-round participation of Arkansas law enforcement agencies in Selective Traffic Enforcement Programs and non-STEP programs. The Law Enforcement Liaison program promotes the participation of Arkansas law enforcement agencies in both the Click it or Ticket and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over annual nationwide traffic enforcement-related campaigns.
“With the seemingly endless demand for newer and more innovative technology by law enforcement agencies and customers alike, the laptop will help replace outdated laptops the Sheriff’s Office already uses, while the pocket camera will be an added tool that deputies can utilize to record audio and video of their interaction with citizens within Jefferson County” Major of Operations Lafayette Woods said.
