One sheriff's office in the east is adding some more manpower and equipment.
The Jones County Sheriff's Office received a $94,000 grant from the Governor's Highway Safety Fund to add another officer and for new equipment like cones, vests, flashlights, signage and a trailer needed to conduct checkpoints.
Sheriff John Hall says they are still in need of additional manpower so they plan to apply for another grant.
