Cape Coral and Naples, Florida to add license plate readers at entrances and exits to the city

To keep you safe, police for Cape Coral and Naples will put license plate readers on the entrances and exits to the city, creating an eye on tens of thousands of cars.

In the instance that you or a family member goes missing, police could use the plate reader to find the matching license plate and then track down the car.

“Well, it’s a lot easier for them to track people find out where anybody’s gone missing and I think that’s a great idea in my opinion,” said Cape Coral resident, Cathy Bell.

And missing persons cases aren’t the only thing the readers can help with, The Cape Coral Police Department says in the past couple of years, the number of cars stolen in the City has increased by 14 percent.

These new cameras could become a considerable asset in tracking down the stolen vehicles.
