Tiburon close to turning on cameras at entry points

The city of Tiburon is close to turning on security cameras that will photograph the license plate of every vehicle that enters town.

Workers are mounting the cameras on Tiburon Boulevard and Paradise Drive, but no precise date of their activation is being released.

Those two routes are the only ways into and out of the city.

Plate numbers will be run through a criminal database and the result will be made available to other departments.

Privacy experts worry that civil rights could be violated.
