Calaveras Sheriff’s Office Received Grant to Fight Alcohol-Related Crime

San Andreas, CA....Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz announced that the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department has been awarded a $41,406.00 grant from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to battle alcohol-related crime. “This is important to the county in order to increase protection for youth and to provide better enforcement of problem locations that have contributed to an increase in crime,” Kuntz said...




The grant was awarded to local law enforcement agencies through ABC’s Grant Assistance Program (GAP). The grants strengthen local law enforcement efforts by combining the efforts of local law enforcement and ABC agents. ABC agents have expertise in alcoholic beverage laws and can help local jurisdictions reduce alcohol-related problems.

“The program improves the quality of life in neighborhoods,” said ABC Director Timothy Gorsuch. “We’ve seen a real difference in the communities where the grant program resources have been invested.”
The GAP Program was created in 1995 to strengthen partnerships between ABC and local law enforcement agencies. The program is designed to put bad operators out of business, keep alcohol away from minors and bring penalties such as fines, suspensions or revocations against businesses that violate laws. The funds will be used to reduce the number of alcoholic beverage sales to minors and obviously intoxicated patrons, the illegal solicitations of alcohol and other criminal activities such as the sale and possession of illegal drugs. The GAP Program has distributed over $30 million to local law enforcement to combat alcohol-related crime.

ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency.

What will they do with the schedules 1200 undocumented illegal immigrants that will be dumped off in Calaveras county. Decide quickly because a bus will be dropping them off soon.

    no, they won't. there is no such thing happening in Calaveras. go have another drink and listen to more conspiracy-theory radio. pretty soon, it'll be dark and you can watch for ufos.

    by the way, this is a huge waste of money. the problems in this county are METH , welfare abuse, and lack of jobs. Sigh. Another Kuntz grandstanding ploy to look good for the public.

      The grant didn't cost the County anything.

Who writes these grants?

Can any one tell me who writes these grants for the Sheriff's Office or for any other agencies that apply for state or federal grants? Does the County have grant writers? Who decides which grants to apply for?

Does any one keep track of how Calaveras is doing on this relative to neighboring counties?

With a county budget way out of balance it seems to me like we should be writing grants in any area that would be helpful. But "be helpful" is the key. I can imagine grants that cause future problems by beginning programs that we have to fund internally in future years.

    You could always call the Sheriffs Office or County and ask. They would probably tell you.
