Tybee Island to track license plates with new scanners


Last week, the Tybee City Council approved installing two license plate scanning cameras for $29,000 at the Lazaretto Creek Bridge. Tybee Police Chief Bob Bryson told me Monday he still has to work with the city on what exactly City Hall wants from the cameras, how they will work and create a policy for how data will be used and stored before his officers can use the system.

But not everyone is happy about this.

City manager Diane Schleicher told reporters last week the system could notify police when it detects a license plate from a stolen vehicle, a car that lacks insurance or a vehicle whose owner is wanted on an arrest warrant.

I'll have the very latest on the situation coming up TONIGHT starting on THE News NOW at 4:00 with WTOC Sonny Dixon.
