Information contained on cell phones, and used in violent crime investigation, was the subject of a grant sought by the Rogers County Sheriff's Office.
Recently, RCSO received an award letter advising them of a $14,584 Attorney General's Safe Oklahoma grant headed their way.
RCSO Undersheriff Jon Sappington said the grants can be used for the purchase of any technology to support violent crime intervention and enforcement.
RCSO, however, is using it to purchase software and tools necessary for the extraction of cell phone data which will help them build better cases.
The Attorney General Safe Oklahoma grant programs as established in 2012 and is available for law enforcement agencies in the state "to increase their capacity to respond to violent crimes in their community," according to the grant's informational site.
