Snapped! Police launch survey on use of ANPR numberplate cameras

Ross Crawford 12th Nov, 2018

POLICE in West Mercia and Warwickshire have launched an online survey about the use of ANPR technology across the region.

The survey runs for six weeks and aims to give local communities, as well as those who travel through the region, a chance to voice their views and understanding of how ANPR is used to tackle crime.

The technology is used to help detect, deter and disrupt criminality at a local, force, regional and national level, including tackling travelling criminals, organised crime groups and terrorists.

ANPR provides lines of enquiry and evidence in the investigation of crime and is used by forces throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The aim of the survey is to develop a broader view of public perceptions and understanding of police use of ANPR, allowing officers to inform and engage with our communities around its future use.

To take part visit www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=154089928356 or visit www.warwickshire.police.uk/ and put ANPR in the search box and go to ‘What do you know about ANPR’
