As part of a national survey, Thames Valley Police is looking for your feedback around the use of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) across our policing area.
ANPR technology is used by police forces across the UK to help detect, deter and disrupt criminality, including organised crime groups and terrorists. Registration plate cameras are most commonly used to alert officers to stolen vehicles, vehicles that have been involved in crime or to help locate missing people. The data they collect can also be used in investigations and they are governed by strict codes of practice.
West Midlands Police have produced a short video which demonstrates how they used ANPR to locate a missing person. To watch the video please click here ANPR Video.
