New Technology Allows Police To Run License Plates Faster
Oklahoma City Police could soon have new technology allowing them to run plates faster. Police crusiers will soon be equipped with license plate scanning systems.
"The technology could scan hundreds of plates in the time it takes for an officer to run just a few," said Captain Dexter Nelson with Oklahoma City Police.
Nelson says it is too early in the process to tell how many cruisers will be equipped with the machines and how much it will cost.
"We're really still planning everything."
The ACLU is against the scanners.
"It's not the technology we have a problem with. It's the data," said Brady Henderson with the ACLU.
Henderson claims the data is stored and eventually becomes a database for tehe government.
"It gives too much information on innocent people."
Nelson says policies for storing the data have not been set up.

Okla. reopens emergency operations command center
May 23, 2013 17:37 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management has reopened its emergency operations center as strong storms moved through central Oklahoma just days after a deadly tornado.
Department spokeswoman Keli Cain said Thursday that the center is open. The department had previously announced that the command center would be shut down at Wednesday at midnight.
Storms with heavy rain and hail began falling in the area early Thursday morning and prompted flash flood warnings in central Oklahoma.
The storms come after a massive tornado struck Moore on Monday and left 24 people dead and more than 300 injured.
