Vigo Sheriff's Department Hopes to Make Software Upgrades

Officials want to make around $600,000 in upgrades to their computer system. That money would give the jail, dispatch center, and deputies all new software. Improvements would allow them to share data with other departments across the state, and bring in new devices like tablets and smartphones.
The Vigo County Sheriff's Department is making sure its staff has the latest in technology.

Officials want to make around $600,000 in upgrades to their computer system.

Two-thirds of that money would come from fees collected from cellular and landline phones.
   
The upgrades would give the jail, dispatch center, and deputies all new software.   
   
Improvements would allow them to share data with other departments across the state, and bring in new devices like tablets and smartphones.

"Use those kind of processes such as being able to take a tablet and two are home and take a police report, or a tablet is carried by a jail officer to help with meal accounting or things like that, or to dispense medication, whatever those cases maybe," said Major Jeff Fox.

The Vigo County Couny Council still has to approve the remaining portion needed for the upgrades, and the new operating system will actually save the department around $20,000 a year.
