City of Greeley/Weld County:
Enhancing Public Safety Through Improved Technology
The City of Greeley and Weld County, as certified disparate jurisdictions, are submitting a joint application for the 2017 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) local solicitation. Each agency has goals in regards to the use of the provided funding.
The main goal of the Greeley Police Department is to improve the technology available to officers. By purchasing fixed automated license plate readers, officers will be notified of a vehicle’s status which enables the officers to take immediate action to apprehend suspects who have committed crimes. The purchase of social media investigation software allows law enforcement to mine various social media platforms for criminal activity. The software also allows officers to monitor and manage crisis events, providing additional public safety.
The main goal for the Weld County Sheriff’s Office is to increase the safety of personnel, as well as the general public. The lease of the body scanners will provide added security for officers, inmates and visitors.
Both of these goals will enhance the City of Greeley and Weld County law enforcement efficiencies and public safety.
The project identifiers for the Greeley Police Department are communications, license plate readers, social media, officer and safety. As for the Weld County Sheriff’s Office project identifiers, they are security and scanners.
