Congressman Virgil Goode delivered checks from the Justice Department to buy new equipment for Henry County and Martinsville patrol cars.
A 100-thousand-dollar grant will help Henry County install video cameras in 38 of its cars.
The cameras give deputies a record of traffic stops that can be used in court.
In Martinsville, a 25-thousand dollar grant will help upgrade in-car computers.
The computers allow officers to access driving and criminal records without tying up dispatchers.
