Flock Safety

Flock Safety System

Automatic License Plate Readers (ALPR) are a valuable resource used to helped law enforcement officers solve crimes.  ALPRs capture computer-readable images of license plates, allowing law enforcement agencies to compare license plate numbers against those of stolen cars or cars driven by people suspected of being involved in criminal activity.  The ALPR system integrates with national, state and local crime databases to provide real-time alerts when a vehicle associated with a crime passes the ALPR system.  When employed ethically and objectively, ALPRs are an effective force-multiplying tool for law enforcement.

Flock Safety communities have reported overall crime reductions of over 70 percent after a period of time utilizing the ALPR system. In some areas, that included an over 60 percent reduction in non-residential burglaries, 80 percent reduction in residential burglary, and an over 40 percent reduction in robberies.
