The Waco Police Department will be installing cameras in police vehicles to crack down on theft and outstanding warrants.
The cameras make it easier to scan the license plates of moving vehicles. The scans will put the plate number in a database, which can then tell officers if that car is tied to any sort of crime.
Officers say the cameras are used to keep the community more accountable and safe.
