This document is a policy guidance resource designed specifically for law enforcement entities and fusion centers to assist them in their efforts to develop comprehensive privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties policies regarding the use of automated license plate readers (ALPRs or LPRs) in intelligence and investigative activities. Justice entities are turning to LPR technology to help solve crimes, recover abducted children, detect trafficking rings, and support terrorism investigations. However, when considering or implementing an LPR program, individual privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties must also be vigorously protected. Justice entities should therefore put in place appropriate policies and procedures to guard against possible errors and other potential problems.
