The Costa Mesa City Council voted 5-0 on Tuesday night to approve $1.125 million this fiscal year to buy five replacement vehicles and upgrade or replace the video systems in the California city's police cars.

According to the L.A. Times, the second and third years of the plan will set aside $230,000 annually to buy 10 more replacement vehicles, $220,000 to create space to store a new mobile command vehicle, and $555,000 for mobile computer units.

Mayor Katrina Foley said in a statement, "We want to make sure that our police officers have the equipment they need so that they can protect the community, they can protect themselves and we can provide good service in our community."
