ANPR technology is used by police forces across the UK – including Dyfed-Powys Police – to help detect, deter and disrupt criminality, including organised crime groups and terrorists.
The registration plate cameras are governed by strict codes of practice. They 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.
You’ve probably seen how ANPR works from TV programmes or you may even use a petrol station or car park which uses the system to keep you safe. Just in case you haven’t, West Midlands Police have made a short film showing the use of ANPR in locating a missing person. Watch the film here…
