Libertyville police will be getting new in-car video systems for its fleet.
The village board this past week recommended approval of the purchase of 12 in-car systems, from CDS Office Technologies in Itasca. The cost is $4,800 per unit, as well as wireless download hardware and related equipment, the installation of network equipment and training, for a total of $112,362.
The current systems are reaching the end of their lives and have maintenance issues, according to Police Chief Clint Herdegen. The video server for the systems is operating in excess of its recommended normal capacity and the cameras are considered older technology, he added.
