WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) — The West Point Police Department is getting seven new radios thanks to a government grant.
Six of them are handheld and feature modern technology that will enable the officers to communicate silently when undercover.
"When officers are out there on the street, it's very important to be able to communicate with the 911 system and their fellow officers," said Avery Cook, assistant police chief. "You get in a situation, you want to have the best communication possible."
The new radios are expected to be installed and fully operational by the end of this month.
