Proposed police cam topic of Ward 4 forum

Ward 4 City Council member Shirley Scott will hold a community meeting about photo traffic enforcement at 7 tonight

The Tucson Police Department has proposed the use of a mobile camera to enforce speed limits in work and school zones and other high-risk areas. Communities nationwide, including metro Phoenix, also use cameras to enforce traffic signals.

Under the Police Department plan, a camera in a van would capture pictures of offending drivers and their license plates. The van would operate during a one-year trial period.

Town halls will be held in each ward before the City Council considers a photo enforcement ordinance. A public hearing will also be held on the proposed ordinance.

Today’s meeting will be in the multipurpose room of the Clements Center, 8155 E. Poinciana Drive. A police representative will give a short presentation about photo enforcement, followed by a Q&A session.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
