During times of crisis, local law enforcement agencies have had a tough time communicating with each other because each group uses different radio frequencies.

But now the federal government has stepped in with a grant that could tie them together.

The three million dollar grant through the Homeland Security agency wuld connect police officers and deputies in Brazos County with their counterparts in Washington county.

Eventually all seven area counties would be joined together through a common frequency.

This is all part of state interoperability goal by the year 2015.
