DAYTON – The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is one of twenty law enforcement agencies who will receive grant money from the Office of Criminal Justice Services to assist with initiatives to continue building stronger relationships between their agency and the communities they serve. The Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board has awarded Ohio a total of $400,000 in grant money, each agency receiving up to $30,000.
Sheriff Plummer plans to use part of the money to improve the relationships between the youth of Montgomery County and law enforcement. In the spring of 2017, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will participate in a youth conference which will promote positive youth/police relations.
Also, with the awarded grant money, Sheriff Plummer will continue his “Improving Modern Police And Community Trust” (IMPACT) initiative. Sheriff Plummer started the IMPACT group, which is currently made up of community faith-based leaders, law enforcement agencies, and members of the community for a means to build trust and strengthen the relationships between law enforcement and the community in order to improve the overall quality of life in Montgomery County
