WPD has 15 mini-cameras mounted on poles with solar panels deployed strategically throughout the city.
These cameras provide officers with real time data to capture the make, model, color and license plate from the rear of vehicles traveling throughout our city. They capture actionable evidence and send real time alerts if a wanted or stolen vehicle passes by these cameras. The alerts are sent to every WPD officer within seconds. The cameras are not used for traffic enforcement, they do not take photos of the vehicle occupants and there is no facial recognition technology.
