Pulaski County Commissioners Approve Sale of Jail Uniforms to Starke County

Some of Pulaski County’s old jail uniforms will soon be going to Starke County. The Pulaski County Commissioners agreed to let Sheriff Jeff Richwine move ahead with the sale last week. “They want them, and we would just throw them away,” Richwine said.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department is also moving ahead with a couple grant applications. The commissioners authorized Richwine to apply for a 911 grant. He previously discussed using grant funds to buy new phones for the county’s 911 center. Richwine explained that it’s a 60/40 grant, and the application period will open up sometime next year.

He said his department is also getting ready to apply for about $185,000 from the Department of Correction, to help potentially convert the basement of the Justice Center into a work release facility.
