The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) awarded a Future Communities Pilot Program (FCCP) grant to
San Bernardino County in the amount of almost $300,000 for a Remote Electronic Warrant program. The program is a
partnership between the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and San Bernardino Superior Courts to seek approval
of search and arrest warrants remotely, without having to physically travel to a courthouse. The program will soon be
expanded to provide the same services to all law enforcement agencies in the County. “This grant accomplishes a number
of goals that I feel very strongly about,” noted Hagman. “It allows the county to expand its use of technology in a smart way
to save time and vehicle miles traveled for our law enforcement personnel. This will help reduce traffic on our busy roads,
and allow our public safety personnel to spend more time in the field keeping our residents safe.”
