Ingham County Sheriff’s Office emergency vehicle operations and supervisors will be receiving grant funding to improve and expand their training programs. On March 13, the county Board of Commissions unanimously approved a resolution to accept two Michigan Municipal Risk Management Association Grants. The operations grant is a long-term grant that provides training for all Ingham deputies and other Mid-Michigan law enforcement officers. The Sheriff’s Office has provided emergency vehicle operations training for its deputies for more than 20 years, and this grant will help offset some costs. Ingham Staff Services Major Joel Maatman addressed the committee on Feb. 21 about the grant.
