The East Baton Rouge Parish Metro Council is agreeing to extend the contract for the red light camera program for another four years.
The Metro Council approved the agreement in a 8-2-2 vote without any debate Tuesday night.
The new agreement would extend the city-parish's professional relationship with Verra Mobility until December 2023.
Under the four-year contract, the firm agrees to absorb all of the cost to upgrade the technology that would allow the city's police department to access real-time footage in its crime center.
Currently, the footage is temporarily stored by Verra Mobility and is not directly or immediately accessible to law enforcement.
