Cameron County Sheriff Department gets new patrol units.
A $2.2 million dollar grant, obtained by the Cameron County Sheriff's Department, means more state of the art patrol units and more officers on the streets, Julio Olivo brings us more.
These are the lights you could be seeing in your rear view mirror, next time you get pulled over in Cameron county, but they'll be attached to a new Dodge Charger Sheriff's patrol unit. The department got the grant about three months ago, that's when the units were ordered and new officers were selected and trained. The new cars have a sticker price of close to $30,000 dollars each because they are equipped with state of the art equipment.
