License Plate Readers
If you drive a car through the Bay Area, chances are good that police have photos of your license plate, and data on where you’ve been, and that information may be available to anyone who asks for it.
With the help of private surveillance cameras, burglaries are down in Fremont. Now, city officials want to install high-def cameras and license plate readers to track criminals coming from out of town.
License plate readers will be mounted on two East Palo Alto police cars and will be able to scan as the cars move, gathering license plate data, up to 360 degrees.
