For what purpose does the police department use the white, mobile observation stations? I have seen one in Frisco and several being used in Plano. What is the primary purpose? Is it an observation station? Is more being done that observing?

The Skywatch unit is used for elevated observation at a variety of public events. It is also used as a deterrent to criminal activity in areas such as parking lots. The unit was purchased with funds forfeited to the police department from past criminal activity.
