How do License plate readers help solve crime?

Seven out of every 10 crimes are committed with a vehicle.

License plate numbers give law enforcement the objective, actionable leads needed to solve the investigation. Using ALPR cameras, detectives can pinpoint the suspect’s last known location which narrows down the search radius. 

Flock Safety ALPR cameras go beyond capturing license plates. Unlike traditional license plate readers, the unique Vehicle Fingerprint™  technology accelerates investigations by allowing users to filter their search based on the vehicle’s specific characteristics, including body type, make, color, and more. This is key in producing an investigative lead for law enforcement when a suspect vehicle has no visible plates.
