License plate recognition is the ability to capture an image of a license plate code, convert the code into readable text, and compare it to a registration database for identification. This technology automates what was a tedious, labor-intensive process for law enforcement personnel, and reduces the timeframe needed to research and identify vehicles.
The Focus Group Report and the Market Survey Report on Mobile License Plate Recognition Systems are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
