The DeWitt County Sheriff's office is receiving American Rescue Plan Act, or ARPA, funds to update its radio system.
Sheriff Mike Walker at the Thursday night DeWitt County Board meeting indicated the system will be similar to what was in place when he started with the Department in the 80s.
According to Sheriff Walker, the County will be nearly a quarter of a million dollars. He has gotten good reviews from his peers in other parts of the state.
He adds when signals end up going digital, it will allow them to have access to secure radio systems that will not go out over the airwaves to scanner listeners.
