Grant awarded to purchase evidence barcode tracking system


The Sheriff's Office has been awarded a grant by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety to purchase a new barcode evidence tracking system for the Sheriff's Office.


The grant will provide funding to purchase new software and equipment to allow deputies to assign a unique barcode to all evidence at the Sheriff's Office. The equipment will allow the deputies to keep only the evidence needed for current cases and reduce the amount of time a victim must wait for their property to be returned to them.
