N.Y. police scan cars with high-tech cameras
By Michael Frazier
LONG ISLAND, N.Y. — A symphony of bleeps inside the Long Beach police cruiser drowned out nearby traffic on a recent morning as Sgt. Bill Dodge pulled into a public parking lot. The pace of the bleeps quickened when he passed the first row of cars in the lot. "There's nothing in here," Dodge said. "Let's head out into the street."
Turning into traffic on Beech Street, Dodge passed dozens of cars before the bleeps gave way to an alarm, then a robotic voice told him about a parked van whose registered driver has a suspended license.
