The Bellefontaine Police Department is taking an active role in preventing and solving crime by installing Flock Safety Automated License Plate Reading (ALPR) cameras.
Flock Safety ALPR cameras help law enforcement investigate crime by providing objective evidence that can be transformed into actionable leads. They capture license plates and vehicle characteristics, not people or faces.
Bellefontaine Police Department will use the Flock Safety system for both proactive and reactive crime fighting. The ALPR network delivers real-time alerts to law enforcement when a stolen or wanted vehicle has passed a camera. The license plate readers can also alert officers if a vehicle associated with a missing person in an AMBER or Silver Alert is detected. When investigating a crime, Flock Safety cameras detect and decode objective leads for law enforcement using Vehicle FingerprintTM technology, which identifies the make, vehicle type, color, license plate (full, partial, or missing), license plate state, and unique vehicle features like roof rack, trailer hitch, tinted windows, and more.
“This technology will help keep our community safer. Without a doubt, this system will provide the needed support our patrol officers need on a daily basis. We’re excited to launch this soon and begin utilizing it,” said Chief Brandon Standley of the Bellefontaine Police Department.
Flock Safety cameras are not used for traffic enforcement and do not include facial recognition capabilities. The data is never sold or shared with third parties, and every search conducted by the system requires an auditable search justification. The footage is securely stored in the cloud and automatically deleted every 30 days, by default.
