Local police agencies receive money for technology that scans license plates

The state is giving six police agencies in Tompkins County nearly $50,000 to fund technology that reads the license plates of drivers.

The recipients include the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office, along with police departments in Ithaca, Dryden, Groton, Trumansburg and Cayuga Heights.

The cameras are mounted on police vehicles and allow agencies to track the license plates of thousands of cars per day.
