Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) was instrumental in arresting two Fresno, CA women in connection with a stolen vehicle on Saturday.
An ALPR hotlist of stolen vehicles alerted police in the area of Parkway and Olive that a stolen vehicle was parked at a motel on Parkway Drive, according to Sgt. Tony Bustos of the Fresno Police.
Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR), is an artificial intelligence system that provide automatically scans vehicle license plates from either mounted locations (such as street poles, streetlights, bridges, tunnels, mobile trailers) or in mobile deployment, (for instance in police cruisers), explains a representative of PlateSmart Technologies, the Platinum Award Winner for Best License Plate Recognition System, in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.
Jody Sisouvong and Amy Montez of Fresno were both arrested and placed in jail for the possession of a stolen vehicle.
The vehicle has been returned to its rightful owner.
ALPR – What Is It?
ALPR automatically captures all license plates as they come within view of ALPR cameras and sensors, autonomously checking the plates against a hotlist database which can include stolen and wanted vehicles, or vehicles owned or registered to wanted fugitives.
In some instances, this data is shared with local, state and federal agencies, creating a robust and efficient policing infrastructure.
ALPR is also increasingly being utilized in business analytics and counterterrorism sectors.
