City council members unanimously voted to upgrade it. The city is buying 9 digital night vision cameras for about $14,000. 

Police Chief Jason Carter says officers will be able to look at the footage any time in real time. 

He had pushed for new cameras and also for a park curfew. 

Right now, no curfew is in place.
