(Altoona, WI) — Police in Altoona say their new license plate readers could help solve crimes faster. City leaders this week said they will install six license plate readers across the city, including at Highway 12 and Mayer Road near Kwik Trip, in the River Prairie area, and near Spooner Avenue and Harvest Lane. Sergeant Jake Henning says the cameras can make tracking down vehicles much easier, and that can lead to breaks in all sorts of cases. Henning said the cameras are not designed to catch people speeding or running red lights. Wisconsin doesn’t allow for those kinds of cameras.
