New Communications System For Gregg County Sheriff's Department

A new state of the art communication system called the "ACU 1000," is allowing Gregg County law enforcement agencies to all be on the same page.

Installed in a central computer terminal at the Gregg County Sheriffs Department, it allows agencies in Henderson, Kilgore, Gladewater, Longview and others to talk on the same band.

The system allows agencies to work together on the same radio frequency to share information. It was made possible through $450,000 a Homeland Security grant.
