Texas: Newly installed camera devices helps police track criminals in the Memorial Villages

The Memorial Villages Police Department has a new crime fighting tool.

They’ve installed automated license plate readers, or ALPRs, which pick up hits on stolen vehicles listed in the state and national database. Often times, the suspects in the stolen vehicle cases are tied to other crimes as well. In a matter of months, ALPRs have already caught people driving stolen cars, alleged armed robbers and identity thieves.
