Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a critical part of many of Enforcement Deputy’s traffic law enforcement features, from parking to speeding, from our Bus Lane Enforcer to our Road Safety Alert System.
ANPR works quietly in the background, reading every license plate that comes into view of the cameras. Whenever Enforcement Deputy needs to look up whether a vehicle is allowed to use a bus lane or park in a restricted area, it identifies that vehicle using the attached plate number. Whenever Enforcement Deputy detects a traffic law violation, the evidence package includes not just the plate number but also a cropped image of the plate itself.
In addition, Enforcement Deputy offers ANPR lookup. This feature looks up every plate number on lists of Vehicles of Interest (VoI) that are stored both inside the system and on external servers maintained by law enforcement. If the plate number is found on one of these lists, a video recording is made of the vehicle’s presence and the officers on duty are immediately alerted.
ANPR lookup helps catch wanted criminals, find stolen cars, and identify unlicensed or uninsured vehicles.
