(Cranston, RI) -- The Cranston City Council held a special meeting Monday night regarding the use of license plate-reading cameras. The program, which is currently in a trial run, has come under fire from the ACLU over privacy concerns. Channel 10 reports most councilors expressed support for continued usage at last night's meeting. The police chief of Pawtucket, one of the other cities which has implemented the cameras, recently told her city council that the surveillance tech has already resulted in several stolen vehicles being recovered and arrests being made.
