Every day, police surveillance teams are asked to keep an eye out for suspicious or stolen vehicles. The chances for success are much greater when a camera with automatic license plate recognition gives police officers a signal whenever a suspicious or stolen vehicle is spotted. SCANaCAR is experienced in the technologies with which police cars can be equipped: compact cameras and equipment that is installed in either the dashboard or roof rack and fast software that can check thousands of license plates against information stored in a secure central database.
