Jim Goeben, IT Director <br />said the upgrades need to be done by January 1st as Microsoft will no <br />longer be providing security patches and therefore there would be an <br />increase in vulnerability to viruses and connecting to the network. <br />The cost is significant because all of the Sheriff’s vehicles have <br />to have the upgrades because their computers are an all in one that <br />includes video, printer, network connections, etc. <br /> <br />Undersheriff Myers said their office should have some savings from <br />the salaries line due to unfilled positions. Those funds could be <br />transferred over to help cover some of the costs to upgrade. <br />
