Daviess County Sheriff's Department

The Daviess County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded a $28,000 grant from NITRO which stands for Northwest Missouri Interagency Team Response Operation.

The funds come from assets seized and / or forfeited as a result of criminal investigations conducted by the ATF sponsored NITRO in which Daviess county is a participant.

The ATF Nitro task force was established in 2002 to provide federal law enforcement assistance to local agencies combatting armed, drug traffickers and violent offenders in Northwest Missouri. ATF is the federal law enforcement agency with primary jurisdiction over firearms-related crimes. Through participation in NITRO resources, equipment and training are provided to local officers of the law.

In 2014, the Daviess County Sheriff’s office was awarded $10,000 from NITRO.
