2 Public Meetings Planned to Discuss Quincy Getting Plate Cameras
The Quincy Police Department will be holding two public meetings to discuss the city possibly getting 20 license plate readers.
The first meeting will take place on Monday, January 23rd at 6 pm in the City Hall Council Chambers. The second meeting will be on Wednesday, January 25th at 6 pm at the Quincy Police Department Sub Post in the Quincy Town Center. The public is invited to these meetings to learn more about the proposal of 20 Flock Safety License Plate Readers potentially being installed in Quincy.
The two public meetings will go into detail about what the readers are, and what they are not and address privacy and constitutional concerns. Members of the QPD will inform the community on how these cameras can help keep Quincy safer.
According to a press release from the Quincy Police Department, these cameras will be installed at fixed locations in Quincy. Those locations were not listed. License plate reader cameras have been in use since the 1980s with advancements in technology throughout the years and are currently being used in thousands of law enforcement agencies in the U.S. These are the cameras that are currently being used in Hannibal.
