A proposed $407 million to Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Fire Rescue: How your tax dollars could be spent

If Orange County commissioners give final approval to a $4 billion budget proposed Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office and Fire Rescue Department plan to create jobs, raise salaries, build new facilities and pay for new programs.

On Tuesday, commissioners gave an initial OK to the 2017-2018 budget, which included nearly $407 million for the two agencies.

Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs said in a statement that the $234 million for the Sheriff’s Office and $173 million for Fire Rescue would go toward “keeping up with growth, maintaining acceptable response times, and simultaneously ensuring the safety of citizens.”

“Public safety remains our number one priority, as tragic events like last year’s Pulse shooting are reminders of our sacrosanct duty to protect our citizens and visitors, including our first responders,” Jacobs said.

SHERIFF’S OFFICE: Deputy shoots suspect in home break-in

PITT COUNTY, NC (WITN) – The SBI is now looking into a deputy shooting a home burglary suspect this morning in Pitt County.

Deputies were called to the break-in happening on Abbott Farm Road about 7:30 a.m. between Ayden and Winterville. The home is at the intersection of Abbott Farm Road and Jolly Road.

Sheriff Neil Elks says a witness called authorities and when deputies arrived, the three burglars started to run.

The sheriff says one of the burglars was armed and fought with a deputy as he was attempting an arrest. That deputy began yelling for backup, and when another deputy came to help, Elks says the suspect pointed the gun at that second deputy who then shot the suspect.

The sheriff says the wounded man is expected to be okay and will be released from the hospital. He said the two deputies will most likely be placed on

Catching up: UW-Madison, Sheriff’s Office team up to study 3-D crime-scene tools

UW-Madison is partnering with the Dane County Sheriff’s Office on a two-year, federally funded study to measure the effectiveness of virtual reality tools and 3-D-capture technology on crime scene investigations.

The study, paid for through a $265,000 Department of Justice grant, will focus on measuring evidence-gathering outcomes provided by traditional hand measurements compared with two of the more advanced 3-D methods.

“The goal is really to quantify what are the benefits, what are the savings in cost and time, and what are the barriers to wider use by law enforcement,” said assistant professor Kevin Ponto, principal research investigator for the study in the university’s Living Environments Laboratory.

The partnership with the sheriff’s office makes sense because deputies who do crime scene investigations became early adopters of the technology with the help of UW-Madison in 2014. That’s when the lab loaned out its LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging)-powered, 3-D laser scanner, and the services
