New Technology ALPR In Frontline Vehicles To Help In Locating Stolen Vehicles In Peel Region
The camera can record moving violations, evidence of impaired driving and capture roadside interactions with officers, similar to body-worn cameras.
Peel Regional Police has installed and deployed Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology within frontline patrol vehicles. As of October 2023, all vehicles equipped with ALPR have a camera-based system that scans and recognizes licence plates in poor standing and is connected to ongoing police investigations.
“The ALPR solution modernizes the way officers conduct routine licence plate checks and will positively contribute towards safer roads and a safer community,” says Inspector Ryan Berrigan of Innovation and Technology Command. “This new technology is capable of scanning thousands of licence plates per hour and will assist our officers in locating stolen vehicles and apprehending many of those responsible.”
