The City Council approved a multi-year agreement for additional traffic cameras in various locations to record the rear image and license plate of vehicles traveling in Urbandale. The camera system can run real-time inquiries with the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and search for associated criminal activity, stolen vehicles, missing persons, and Amber Alerts. The Police Department initially implemented 14 cameras in May 2022. During the past year, the cameras have resulted in 59 warrant arrests, the retrieval of 14 stolen vehicles, the safe recovery of a missing child, and investigative assistance in 61 criminal cases.
