The Fremont County Board of Supervisors revisited bids for cameras and other equipment for the county sheriff’s office at its weekly meeting on March 15.
Sheriff Kevin Aistrope first approached the board on Feb. 1 about obsolete technology in their department that was causing problems with cameras and the jail doors. He said that they would also have to buy new car cameras because of technology changes that had been made, and that the new cameras will not work with their current server so the server would need to be upgraded as well.
Aistrope had asked supervisors to approve funding for the department, and a bid was originally approved on Feb. 22.
Due to a discrepancy on what equipment was covered in the original bid, the dollar amount that was approved last month was inaccurate. Therefore, Aistrope presented two separate bids to the supervisors for approval this week. One bid included the jail cameras, computers, servers and security control computers for $72,147.05, and a bid for the purchase of car and body cameras and installation was $179,160.90. Supervisors approved the revised bids.
