TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (AP) — License plate scanners will soon track cars coming and going from Tybee Island.

The island's city council recently voted to install two license plate cameras on the Lazaretto Creek Bridge.

The Savannah Morning News (http://bit.ly/1dF5c1I ) reports that the cameras will first be used to track visitors to the coastal island for tourism studies. The council required that city officials create a policy about how the data are used and stored before law enforcement officials can use the system.

City Manager Diane Schleicher said the system could notify police when it detects a license plate from a stolen vehicle, a car that lacks insurance or a vehicle whose owner is wanted on an arrest warrant.

The council approved nearly $29,000 for the system.
