Examples of eligible items include: training materials or equipment, TVs, computers, videos, defensive tactics training, etc.
Eligible Members will be provided a grant up to $1,000 on a reimbursement basis for the purpose of incentivizing the sheriffs’ offices to take the training.

Grant funds will be distributed on a first come, first approved basis until all eligible funds have been expended. More information will be distributed by LGRMS to the sheriffs’ offices.
