COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - The Columbus Police Department is upgrading its GPS units in its patrol vehicles.

WTVA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1L4aRnr ) the city council has approved the purchase of the technology which reports an officer’s whereabouts every minute. Right now, it’s reported every five minutes.

Police Chief Oscar Lewis says when he was in Waynesboro, his officers used the new technology and it’s to keep the officers safe and accountable.

The total cost is a little over $1,100.

Lewis hopes to eventually give 911 access to the officers’ GPS.
