The Deschutes County Sheriffs Office and Bend Police will split a more than $46,000 federal grant. “It’s helpful. It's to purchase some things that we didn't have in our budget that our needed.   So, yeah, it's a great thing.” Deschutes County Sheriffs’ Captain Tim Edwards says the Sheriffs Office will purchase ten riot shields, six security cameras for the jail and work center and an audio and video recording system for two interview rooms in the jail. Bend Police will buy a negotiator phone system for the emergency response team, which is similar to a swat team.   Also on their list is a thermal imaging device and two remote lighting systems.   The Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant is designed to help equip state and local law enforcement.
