Police Getting Funding For Automated Licence Plate Readers

Tuesday November 22nd, 2022, 1:00pm


The Windsor Police Service with $1,492,628.00 from the Ontario government to enhance their Automated Licence Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology – a system that consists of cameras that automatically scan licence plates.

The system is installed in or on active-duty police cruisers and alerts officers to stolen or expired plates, or plates registered to suspended drivers. The system can also notify officers of missing and wanted persons and vehicles associated with AMBER alerts.

“The Ontario Government’s continuing investments in technology supporting the Windsor Police Service in their fight against crime is welcome news,” said Andrew Dowie, Windsor—Tecumseh Member of Provincial Parliament. “Enhancing our Automated Licence Plate Recognition Technology ensures that our front-line officers are equipped with the tools to support recovering and returning stolen vehicles to the victims of these crimes.”  

The Automated Licence Plate Recognition Technology Grant is a one-time grant to help police services strengthen roadside law enforcement efforts and improve public safety across the province.
