Police Add 7 More Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) Cameras

Piedmont Police Announcement:

We are proud to announce that this week we have added seven Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) cameras to our fleet. ALPR software is a technology that uses cameras to automatically read license plate characters. The cameras capture license plate information and transmit plate data to a database, which can run a check for stolen vehicles, Amber Alerts, Silver Alerts, missing persons and wanted people.

The data is used for legitimate law enforcement purposes with a right to know and need to know reason, which is highly protected.

We are committed to keeping Piedmont safe for everyone by capitalizing on evolving technology and always striving to be more effective in our ability to protect our community.
