The platform can be moved to different locations within the city, including high traffic parking lots.
"This new platform is an excellent vehicle to increase citizens' feelings of safety. Putting police officers in strategic locations will reduce crime and improve the quality of life in League City" said Police Chief Mike Jez.
The platform, which cost around $66,000, was purchased with funds from League City's Safelight Program. The Safelight fund was created using a portion of the red-light camera citation revenues.
The platform will be used for the first time on Saturday at Wal-Mart Victory Lakes.
