Evidence at Scale: 6 Benefits of LPR For Law Enforcement

As law enforcement knows all too well, without crucial evidence like a license plate or vehicle description, cases can easily go unsolved. 

To address crime with actionable evidence, Flock Safety’s suite of license plate recognition (LPR) cameras provides vehicle data featuring Vehicle Fingerprint®, real-time alerts, searchable evidence, and analytics to improve police response and investigations 24/7.

Here are six reasons law enforcement agencies across the country are using LPR cameras to advance their investigations.

Flock Safety Falcon® LPR Camera

1. No more gaps – just evidence.

A license plate is just a start. Flock’s Vehicle Fingerprint® tech turns footage into evidence that solves cases by pinpointing vehicles by make, color, type, and unique characteristics like decals, bumper stickers, and accessories. This capability proved to be instrumental in a recent case in Catoosa, OK where police were able to track down the suspect connected to a mass murder after their vehicle was spotted by a Flock camera.

3. Infrastructure-Light Design.

Solar-powered and LTE-connected, Flock Safety Falcon® LPR cameras avoid typical infrastructure hassles, ensuring swift setup and zero utility fees. This ultimately allows your department to quickly begin seeing results from the cameras as seen in Wake Forest, NC, where 3 stolen vehicles were recovered within the first 24 hours of their Flock LPR cameras being activated.

4. Unparalleled Network Access.

Crime doesn’t respect jurisdictional lines. With Flock, you can access exponentially more investigative leads by linking into a local, state, and nationwide network of LPR cameras.
