Sacramento Police Department is using new surveillance cameras to fight crime in the area.
The city was awarded $600,000 by the California Emergency Management Agency to purchase the equipment. The request was made possible through Mayor Johnson’s efforts to make the community safer, according to the Sacramento Police Department.
Following are the items the department was able to purchase:
