The Houston Police Department is planning to install traffic cameras in all three of its police departments over the next few years.
In September, the department announced plans to install 20 traffic cameras across the city by 2020.
According to the city’s Department of Transportation, the first traffic cameras will be installed in Penndot in 2021.
The first cameras will take over from existing cameras in the areas of Alamo Heights, Alamo Square, and the Eastside.
The city is also planning to upgrade two other traffic cameras around the city in 2019, one near the airport and one in the Rio Grande Valley.
The traffic cameras are expected to be installed as part of the citywide installation of a new police car camera system.
A similar camera system is being installed in Austin.
According to the Houston Police Association, the cameras will cost $4 million and will be fully operational in 2019.
According the department, it’s important for the city to build on its recent success in getting traffic cameras installed.
The first traffic sensors installed by the department will be in Penindot, which will house six cameras that are scheduled to be up and running by 2021.
“I’m excited to see our first traffic patrol cars in Penmdot.
I’m looking forward to getting to work as soon as we can,” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said in a statement.
Acevedo has also expressed confidence in the technology and said he expects the cameras to be effective.
The department has spent $2 million on the project, which began in 2012 and has already covered about 5,500 square feet.
