PALMVIEW – Palmview Police Department recently acquired a new Skywatch mobile surveillance tower. They will now be able to watch areas from 30 feet above the ground.
Skywatch is a mobile elevated surveillance tower with cameras that can watch an area 24/7. The tower can reach a height of 45 feet, but because of South Texas winds, it will probably not be raised more than 30 feet, said Palmview code enforcement officer David Nacianceno.
He said Skywatch is another safety measure the city is implementing to help deter crime.
