The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office is wrapping up a yearlong project of installing tracking devices in all patrol cars. The electronics will allow for dispatch to see where deputy vehicles are in real time. Sheriff Robert Arnold told WGNS…
The Sheriff’s Department purchased the AVL units with the help of a grant. AVL stands for Automatic Vehicle Locator (AVL) system. The Sheriff’s Office also bought GPS units with the grant that totaled over $37,000.
When the grant was awarded to the Sheriff’s Office, a similar grant was approved for the Murfreesboro Police Department. The city used the money to buy two-way radios and laptop computers with printers.
