From the City of West University Place:

Work is underway to install new license plate recognition (LPR) cameras and Tilt-Pan-Zoom (TPZ) as part of the Virtual Gate Project – Phase 2.  The cameras are equipped with similar technology used in police patrol vehicles that can detect and alert the police department of stolen vehicles, vehicles associated with Amber or Silver alerts, and vehicles that are registered with a record of crimes. The project is estimated to be completed by the end of the year.
