Logan Sheriff's Dept. and Logan BOE Granted $194,000




Logan County Sheriff’s Department in partnership with the Logan County Board of Education were recently granted $194,000.

The Sheriff’s Office applied for funding from the United States Department of Justice-COPS Office School Violence Prevention Program along with the Logan County Board of Education. The federal grant program is open to school districts across the country. Logan County was once again selected based on the grant application prepared and submitted by Sgt. Nick Booth.


That previous money was put to use updating cameras and Digital Video Recorders.


This grant is 100% federally funded with no local matching necessary. Sgt Booth says grants that don’t cost the county taxpayers are the grants the sheriff’s office is going after.


“Anything we can do to help bring some money into the county,” Booth told WVOW News. “We’re hoping and looking for anything we can do.”


Booth is a Prevention Resource Officer at Logan High School. The program is now in its sixth year. Initially, the program started out with a one resource officer at Man High School and has grown to six officers in the county’s secondary schools.


Logan County Board of Education President Jeremy Farley stated “Student safety is our top priority, and the board truly appreciates the longstanding relationship we have with the Logan County Sheriff’s Department.”
