Niskayuna to buy license plate reader

The Niskayuna Town Board Thursday night accepted a $23,400 state grant for the police department to purchase a license plate reader and a street surveillance camera.

The reader will be the town’s second. The town’s current reader is outdated technologically, though still operational.

The surveillance camera is to be installed on State Street at Mansion Boulevard and will be capable of looking in all directions. It will be hooked into the countywide network.
