Town Hides License Plate Readers In Fake Cactuses

I would like to know how many stolen cars have been recovered using this system.

This is one of the first public cases of the cameras being actively concealed, although the Paradise Valley Police insisted that the purpose of the cactuses was not to keep the system secret. "We want to make sure we're answering everybody's questions about data retention," town manager Kevin Burke told Fox 10. "How the things will be used, we want to make sure that is vetted before we turn these things up."
