(GREENVILLE, SC) – The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce a generous donation made to the Greenville County Sheriff’s Foundation of $90,000 from the Silent Tears Foundation, headed by Bob and Kelly Castellani. This significant contribution is earmarked for the acquisition of five state-of-the-art forensic computers that will bolster the capabilities of the Sheriff’s Office’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit.

The new forensic computers are equipped with advanced technology that empowers our investigators in their relentless fight against crimes targeting children. These cutting-edge machines enable our team to navigate vast datasets, utilize specialized recovery tools to examine and extract critical evidence, and efficiently organize this information. This technology gives our investigators a comprehensive understanding of each case they handle.

Sheriff Hobart Lewis expressed his gratitude, stating, “We are very thankful for the relationship and the partnership we have with Silent Tears and their willingness to give back to the community to keep our children safe.” The collaboration between Silent Tears Foundation and the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office exemplifies the dedication to the safety and well-being of our community’s children.

One notable feature of these forensic computers is their ability to identify encrypted files, hidden folders, and deleted data. This capability is pivotal in our investigators’ success as they work tirelessly to combat crimes against our children.

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office extends its heartfelt appreciation to the Silent Tears Foundation for their generous donation, which will significantly enhance our ability to protect the most vulnerable members of our community.
