Sheriff Wins Statewide Grant

   Some good news for the Smith County Sheriff's Department. It's getting help from some unblinking eyes.

   The Sheriff's Office won a grant from the Department of Public Safety for car mounted video cameras. Cameras like these have been used by police and highway patrol officers across the state. Now, the county will get thirty cameras which will be installed next summer.

   The grant for the cameras will save the county $150,000 dollars.
