Monroe, LA Police getting more license plate scanners

Monroe Police is about to get more technology to help fight crime. On August 11, the city council gave the green light for the department to buy 15 more license plate readers. Police say the readers help officers find vehicles connected to criminal activity.

Monroe Police has four license plate readers located throughout the city but they are looking to buy up to 15 more. The police chief said they help officers solve crimes and be more efficient.

Officers are using every tool they have to make our communities a safer place to live. That’s why MPD is moving forward with its license plate reader program.
