Halferty to ask Board for COPS grant
Jasper County Sheriff John Halferty will be present at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting and will be seeking board approval of a Community Oriented Policing Services grant for a school resource officer.
COPS is a division of the U.S. Department of Justice. According to its website, COPS advances the practice of community policing in America’s state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies. COPS does its work principally by sharing information and making grants to police departments around the U.S.
If the board approves the resolution, there are several requirements the department would have to meet if it were awarded the funds from COPS. First, the funds would not be allowed to be used for any other community policing initiatives. The department also would have to report contact information for every school that the resource officer attends and provide a memorandum of understanding between the school and the department to COPS.
