OCONTO COUNTY CRIME PREVENTION FUND (CPF)
The Oconto County Board of Supervisors established the Crime Prevention Fund Board (CPFB). The purpose of the CPFB is to receive and administer revenues generated by a crime prevention surcharge (CPS) in the amount of $20.00 imposed upon individuals for each misdemeanor and for each felony of which an individual is convicted. It is anticipated that $7,500 will be collected annually.
The CPFB shall allocate fifty (50%) per cent of the CPS to a law enforcement agency within Oconto County and fifty (50%) per cent to one or more non-profit crime prevention organization(s) within Oconto County.
Non-profit crime prevention organizations within Oconto County can apply for this funding by contacting the Administrative Coordinator’s Office at 920-834-6811 for an application packet and additional information. Also visit the County website at www.co.oconto.co.wi.us for more information.
