Thousands of dollars recovered from drug investigations will be put to good use.

This after Immigrations and Customs Enforcement donated money to the Pharr Police Department.

Part of the funds obtained will be used for the purchase of body-cameras for the 132 officers that patrol Pharr roads.

Alleged cases of police brutality have grabbed national attention, increasing the need for surveillance video that can evaluate the officers.

Understanding this conflict, Pharr officials are investing part of the $480,000 in body cameras.
