The Thomas County Sheriff's Office says some of the grant money has already been spent on purchasing and installing new digital cameras for Police and Sheriff's Department patrol cars in Thomasville, Boston and Meigs.

They say the new technology helps officers and deputies do their jobs safer and more professionally.

Says Capt. Steve Jones, "The best evidence you can put on the stand is in-car camera video. It helps protect the officer, as well as protect the evidence and record evidence as it's happening live."

The $80,000 is also being used to buy radar detection guns, thermal imaging guns and pole cameras that can be used for security at different events.
