License Plate Readers: A Primer

The adoption and use of license plate reader (or license plate recognition) systems (LPR systems) by state, local, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies continues to increase. The integration of LPR systems can support and enhance enforcement and investigative capabilities through the collection of relevant data and expedite the time needed to compare vehicle license plates with lists of stolen, wanted, and other vehicles of interest. Examples of LPR system value include improving law enforcement's ability to recover stolen vehicles, more quickly identifying a vehicle associated with an AMBER or SILVER alert, or identifying a vehicle registered or associated with a wanted individual.
