Stolen vehicle retrieved with help of automatic license plate recognition
ALPR strikes again! Automatic License Plate Recognition 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 nearby. The vehicle was tracked back to a local motel.
Automatic License Plate Recognition– ALPR also known as Automatic Number Plate Recognition, ANPR is artificial intelligence system scanning license plates from mounted locations such as street poles, streetlights, bridges, tunnels, mobile trailers an in police cruisers. It automatically captures all plates in it’s view and checks the plates against a hotlist database which can include stolen and wanted vehicles. In some cases, this data is shared with local, state and federal agencies, creating a robust and efficient policing infrastructure. ALPR can also be used for business analytics and counter terrorism.
Jody Sisouvong and Amy Montez of Fresno were both arrested and placed in jail for the possession of a stolen vehicle.
