The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded $22,971.46 in grant money from the Deputy Sheriff Salary Supplement Fund program. The DSSSF Grant increases the annual base pay to $29,000 for our deputies. The grant also covers any/all additional costs associated with the increased compensation so the county tax payers are not footing the bill for this grant.
The application was made to the Missouri Mo-Smart Board and Department of Public Safety to increase the base pay for Livingston County Deputy Sheriffs.
The 2016 grant runs July 01, 2015 through June 30, 2016. Presiding County Commissioner Ed Douglas was the Authorizing Official while Sheriff Steve Cox was the grant applicant and Project Director. County Clerk Sherry Parks is the Fiscal Officer for the grant.
DSSSF grant money is obtained through a fee on Court service papers served by the Offices of Sheriff in Missouri.
