Police watchtower installed at North Concord BART Station

CONCORD (KRON) — A new and perhaps welcome sight at the BART Station in North Concord.

It is a police watchtower, designed to provide eyes from the sky and to discourage crime. Recently, there have been car break-ins and parking lot hold-ups at a few BART stations.

The mobile watchtower on wheels will move around, rotating from one BART parking lot to another. 0DC291AACB494308BCB0242F9EBA99AB

It was paid for with Homeland Security funds.

While drivers parked their cars for the day recently, thieves have been stealing the catalytic converters from underneath the vehicles.

And they are more than likely being sold for some fast cash.
