Get Back to School Safely with ALPR

All campuses require top-notch security measures to keep students and staff safe from potential threats, like criminal activity. Vehicles often play a role in carrying out crimes, such as commuting to and from the crime scene, entering restricted areas, transporting illegal substances, or abduction and human trafficking. 

How can campus safety officers and law enforcement safeguard campuses against these types of threats?

Suspicious vehicles need to be recognized as soon as possible in order to respond to the potential a threat in a timely manner. Therefore, arming campus security and law enforcement with the right tools to accurately monitor vehicles that enter and exit campus perimeters is essential – and ALPR is the perfect tool for the job.

ALPR technology assists campus safety and law enforcement to quickly identify, monitor and intercept suspect vehicles, enabling crime prevention measures and increasing campus security, as well as assisting in crime investigations.

How does ALPR technology work to protect campuses?

When a vehicle passes a VECTOR ALPR camera, the license plate is recorded. These powerful ALPR cameras coupled with advanced TraffiData analysis software can filter out suspects from other vehicles by processing this recorded data in real time and evaluate it using different filters. TraffiData is then able to compare the data against law enforcement or campus security hotlists. When a search returns a hit, like a stolen vehicle or an unauthorized vehicle that has entered a restricted area, for example, the appropriate campus security and law enforcement agencies are automatically alerted in seconds.

Filters can also be defined within the software to reconstruct movement patterns, departure points and even links to other vehicles involved. Campus security and law enforcement agencies can then create criminal profiles and identify suspect behavior, enabling them to determine where a suspect vehicle is located, and effectively pursue and even prevent crime.

ALPR technology keeps you one step ahead of the threat and is highly effective in keeping your campus safe. Learn more about how Jenoptik can equip you with the right tools to help safeguard your campus before back to school season with ALPR technology.
