Gov. Perry Awards $37,015 to Nolan County For Electronic Fingerprinting System

Tuesday, November 29, 2005  •  Press Release

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today awarded $37,015 to Nolan County to purchase a live scan electronic fingerprint system that will provide local law enforcement officers with the ability to capture fingerprints electronically and submit them to the Texas Department of Public Safety criminal history database for background checks. This grant is awarded under the state County Essential Services Program and is distributed by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD).

“This fingerprint system is a fundamental resource for Nolan County law enforcement officers to help ensure positive identification of individuals in custody,” Perry said.

The County Essential Services Program provides financial assistance to counties for important public services, including upgraded law enforcement technology, jail and court services, and reimbursement of extraordinary costs incurred for the investigation or prosecution of capital murder or crimes committed because of bias or prejudice.

Each year, CJD provides more than $130 million in grants to help reduce crime. CJD funds a variety of juvenile justice, criminal justice, and victim services programs – all aimed at making Texas a safer place.
