The DeWitt County Sheriff's Office is among several DeWitt and Piatt County entities joining forces to update the reporting system they use.
The system won't be ready for use for approximately 18 more months but the Sheriff says this is something they are desperately in need of.
One of the benefits of the new system will be a lot of information sharing between all the entities involved in the purchase process. The Sheriff says this will not only benefit them but everyone involved.
The total cost of the system is roughly $291,000 and Sheriff Walker explains that will be able to be divided up to each participating entity. The implementation of this new system will gradually be installed, which is a bonus according to the Sheriff.
Sheriff Walker calls the new system much easier to use. The current system is very cumbersome but the new system will streamline all the information they will need in one place.
