PSAP Grant Programs

The Page County Sheriff’s Office has received two grants from the Public Safety Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) in 2015.

Both grants upgrade the work stations in our Dispatch Center.  The new equipment provides better interoperability between Page County and other jurisdictions, as well as a highly reliable system to properly identify the callers number and location, especially cell phone calls to E-911.

In addition, grant funds were obtained to train our dispatch personnel on the new equipment.

Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Grant

The Page County Sheriff’s Office has again received funding to continue our Internet Crimes Against Children Investigator position.  This is the only such position within the local law enforcement community of Page County.  The position has been grant funded for the past 5 years and hopefully funds will be available in the future to maintain the position.

This is a program that, with or without grant funding, must be maintained and utilized to help keep our children safe from sexual predators.
