Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $18,383)

The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office proposes the use of JAG Funds to purchase specialized uniforms for the Gallatin County Special Response Team (SRT). All the uniforms being requested will be used in situations where officer safety and efficacy is paramount. SRT's primary mission is to save lives. The team responds to critical incidents that typically exceed the capabilities of patrol units such as armed, barricaded suspects, hostage situations, escaped/fleeing felons, active killer events and high-risk warrant service.  Our uniform purchase will support on scene security protection and law enforcement in many ways.  This request for uniforms is needed to help support the safety and effectiveness of the Gallatin County SRT where inclement weather is a factor.
