CAMERON COUNTY, Texas – The Cameron County Sheriff’s Office is adding new computer systems to their units.
The first 50 computers are being installed in the patrol units.
Sheriff Omar Lucio says they received a grant from the commissioner’s court, something they’ve been requesting since 2017.
Lucio adds that the goal of the computers is to make it easier for the officers to write and send reports.
“They don’t want us to use any paper. It’s paperless what they call from one computer to the next to the next computer. Electronics, like anything else, keeps changing from day to day, today this is the latest. Tomorrow, maybe something else,” said Omar Lucio, Cameron County Sheriff.
The Cameron County Sheriff’s Office is waiting on 25 more computers. A total of 75 computers will be added, with all units going live in November.
Sheriff Lucio said he hopes this will help officers in keeping our community safe.
