— A law that went into affect in 2007 requires all prisoners, interrogated on felony charges, be video-taped. While the Rock County Sheriff's Department is in compliance with the law, officials want to upgrade their facilities with a state grant amounting to $27,500.

Sheriff's Department Sgt. Brian Aubrey says the money will give them four rooms to record interviews instead of the one they have now. The grant money will cover everything, including cost of the equipment and installation.


Aubrey says they hope to have the project finished around the end of the year. The grant application is currently going through the approval process. The money comes from the Wisconsin Office of Justice Assistance.
