Police have an extra set of eyes on the road and these don't blink. The new technology goes way beyond the average dash board cam.  It's a license plate scanner that tells police in Rocky Mount what you've done from a distance.  A computer and camera will zero in on your license plate, read it and then be able to pick up if you are wanted on any felonies. "We have actually stopped cars and not known they were homicide suspects and therefore from the safety standpoint of it, put an officer at risk," says Rocky Mount Police Chief David Cundiff.
