(SUGAR LAND, TX) — The City of Sugar Land has approved $1.6 million for 27 new crime prevention cameras.

Most of the cameras will be installed at locations north of US Highway 90A, but a few will be installed in subdivisions south of the highway as well.

“The way it would work would be that a crime would occur somewhere in the city, a witness would provide us with a vehicle description and then a police officer authorized to access the system would search the database for the suspect vehicle and potentially locate a license plate number,” said city spokesperson Doug Adolph.

Adolph said the city has been using similar cameras as crime tools for the past five years.
