• CMPD chief to update city leaders on new technologies first used during DNC


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte Police Chief Rodney Monroe will go before City Council Monday night to talk about new technologies the city is using to keep residents safe.

    The two main items he will talk about are closed circuit cameras and automatic license plate readers.

    Both of those items were put to the test during the Democratic National Convention, and Monroe will update city leaders on how they performed during the convention.

    The closed circuit cameras were used to help identify people who may cause problems. 

    More than two dozen automatic tag readers were put up to scan every tag that went through certain intersections.  That information was sent back to a server a police headquarters. It could also be sent to patrol cars.

    Monroe is expected to explain how he would like to use these technologies next.

    Channel 9 will have the full story starting at 10 p.m.
