The Grambling State University Police Department is getting a technology update at no cost to its students. The police department has been awarded a $99,000 grant for technology enhancement from the U.S. Department of Education.

The grant will be used to purchase new computers, body cameras, Tasers and a program that allows parking tickets to be issued electronically instead of written by hand.

GSU Police Chief Howard Caviness said the grant, which runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, 2016, will provide equipment to help the officers better ensure campus safety.
