CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

Hamilton County Sheriff Deputies can now clock drivers and send them tickets, without ever getting out of their cars.

Commissioners today passed a resolution allowing Sheriff Jim Hammond to contract with a company called Applied Technology Partners. The company will give the sheriff's office two camera-equipped speed detection lasers that will allow officers to take videos of drivers who are speeding. The officers will then upload that video to the company, which will then mail a $50 civil ticket to the person to whom the vehicle is registered.

The commission was split on the issue, but it ultimately passed 5-4.

Commissioners Chester Bankston, Greg Beck, Jim Fields, Marty Haynes and Larry Henry voted for the measure.
