The Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office obtained a grant for technology that covered the cost of $230,000.00 at no cost to the County. The project was laid out to be a major upgrade from the current technology that was issued in the patrol cars back in 2004 from another grant that Lt. Dale E. Parish obtained to perform infield electronic reporting.

This upgrade was laid out for proprietary needs to help meet officer safety needs and use. The equipment layout was performed by Lt. Parish and Matthew D. Parish for what those specific needs would be. The grant was obtained through the Sheriff, Jack Middaugh, and reviewed by Matt Parish, Lt. Parish, and Lt. Monce of the patrol division.

MIT did the in car docking station installations while Matt Parish setup and configured all the “Fully Rugged CF30 Though Books”. Lt. Parish configured all the EVDO cellular military spec modems and GPS/AVL units that allow the cruisers to display on the Pictometry and Accuglob software that resides in our dispatch center. This completed project is a major advancement to help better serve our county.
