DALLAS, Ga. (AP) — The Paulding County Sheriff's Office is announcing plans to add dozens of high-resolution cameras along the Silver Comet Trail in the wake of an attack that left a jogger severely injured.

Sheriff Gary Gulledge and other county officials said Thursday they hope to add about 47 high-resolution digital cameras at about 21 locations along the trail during the first phase of planned security upgrades.

The 42-year-old woman was attacked July 29. No arrests have been made.

The expansion of cameras would be a dramatic upgrade, since there now only three sites with cameras along Paulding County's 18-mile portion of the trail.

The sheriff also hopes to purchase two more vehicles to patrol the trail.

Also Thursday, Gulledge announced that a reward fund in the case has risen to about $10,000.
