WICHITA — Wichita police are deploying a new tool in the fight against graffiti and illegal dumping.
Digital cameras called FlashCAMs have the ability to capture clear, high-resolution images and read license plates 250 feet away in total darkness, police officials said today.
The city spends up to $500,000 a year cleaning up graffiti and picking up and disposing of illegally dumped items, Sedgwick County Commissioner Jim Skelton said. A recent cleanup of a dump site in Planeview cost $12,000 alone, he said.
