This week the LCSO submitted 2 grant applications, 1 being a COPS Grant Application for a potential new deputy sheriff which will be assigned as a School Resource Officer for Chillicothe R-II Schools.  The deputy would be our officer for 3 years but all costs will be paid for from the grant and school, there would be no cost of employment for Livingston County should we be awarded the grant.  After 3 years the deputy may be fully employed by the school.  Chief Deputy Michael Claypole authored this grant application.

The 2nd grant is for a continuation of the Deputy Sheriff Salary Supplemental Grant Funding from the State of Missouri.  Sheriff Cox applied for an additional $18,917.97 which covers supplemental salary and employment costs for the sworn deputies to get their base pay to $28,000 and for the 3 making that or more provides them with an additional $100 per month.

Both grant applications were approved by the Livingston County Commission and Ms. Eva Danner-Horton was the Authorizing Official while Sheriff Cox is the Project Director.
