TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A $100,000 grant is helping provide Tippecanoe County's High Tech Crime Unit with new resources, software and training.
The unit is made up of local law enforcement agencies including Purdue University.
It was created to provide digital evidence for use in court cases.
The evidence is commonly used for child neglect cases, vehicle accidents and robberies.
Prosecutor Patrick Harrington said this grant has helped more than just Tippecanoe County.
"We've solved murder cases. We've assisted other counties who don't have these resources and providing forensic evidence for their casework in their trials," said Harrington.
This is the fourth year the county has received the grant.
Since its creation in 2011, the High Tech Crime Unit has received more than $200,000 in grants.
