DENVER, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Denver police said red-light cameras removed from four intersections will be reinstalled and controlled by a new contractor.

Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said city officials are preparing to have a different contractor install new cameras and plan to place them at up to 20 more intersections once funding issues are resolved, the Denver Post reported Friday.

Mel Thompson, the city's deputy manager of safety, said officials will talk to the City Council before expanding the program beyond four intersections. The red light cameras, which take photos of cars running through stop lights, are considered a priority by the department, he said last year.

The city generated $1.5 million in revenue last year from $75 tickets issued as a result of the cameras.
