PECOS - Pecos Police are going digital.

They just received a federal grant for a brand new communications system.

The Criminal Justice Division awarded almost $140,000 dollars for new patrol car radios, portable radios, and dash-board cameras.

Chief Clay McKinney told NewsWest 9, this will greatly improve their ability to communicate out in the field and save them money on VHS tapes in the long-run.

He hopes to have everything in place during the next 45 days.
