New Eyes For Belleville Police

Police in Belleville have a new camera and it’s putting people in jail.

The Belleville Police Department is using a new 17-thousand dollar license plate-reading camera that’s installed on an unmarked police car.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports the camera is being used to pick out license plates associated with arrest warrants.

In one day last month the camera read 926 plates and spotted a dozen drivers wanted on warrants.
