This Division receives direct supervision from the Sheriff and Chief Deputy to develop and implement external funding, by developing and coordinating processes and procedures for efficient and effective grant preparation, submission, and assessment.

During calendar 2009, GRASP developed, implemented, and administered over $840,000 in new grants for the department. GRASP has two employees: a Director and an Analyst.

The Director of GRASP:

The Analyst engages in several main areas of activity: providing support for the operations of
the Grants Office, and identifying potential patterns evidenced through facilitating the monthly
Uniform Crime Reports for the Department. Under the direction of the Director, the Analyst
tracks all federal and state grant funds and identifies program successes and opportunities for
improvement. The Analyst assists in gathering data, monitoring progress towards meeting
objectives and by keeping appropriate records, and assisting in producing the necessary quarterly and final reports.
