Calif. town to vote on $42K grant for license plate scanning equipment
Signal Hill Police Chief Michael Langston recommends the council accept the grant
By Phillip Zonkel
SIGNAL HILL, Calif. — Finding stolen vehicles or wanted suspects might get a little easier thanks to a $42,130 grant for 21st century technology from the Department of Homeland Security.
The city was awarded the grant so it can purchase equipment that scans license plates and immediately cross-references the information with criminal databases, according to a city council staff report.
