Larimer County uses traffic camera on panhandlers

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - The Larimer County Sheriff's Office is using a mobile traffic camera to spy on panhandlers and enforce a new law.

Capt. John Manago says the camera is a highly visible deterrent that keeps panhandlers away from one of their favorite haunts, where asking for money is now prohibited.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan (http://tinyurl.com/bkr8twc), the camera was bought with a grant. The only costs are fuel for a generator and the rare occasion that people are sent to cart it around.
