Roscommon County Sheriff Department Receives Grant from RCCF

The Roscommon County Sheriff Department has a new Evidence Collection Camera with help from a grant from the Roscommon County Community Foundation. The change from film to digital cameras has made it easier to collect photographic evidence but has also resulted in the need for different and better equipment to produce usable photos. With the new digital camera, photos can be immediately reviewed, settings changed and new photos taken, all while at the scene of an incident. A higher resolution camera is required to produce the detail needed to later make comparisons and potential positive matches of physical evidence such as fingerprints or footwear impressions. A special tripod is also included to allow exact placement of the camera to obtain the clearest and closest photos possible to retain a record of the evidence. The grant money was provided by the Roscommon County General Fund, an Endowment Fund of the Roscommon County Community Foundation.
