Chicago police cameras may scan plates for stolen cars, suspects

By Fran Spielman
The Chicago Sun-Times

Surveillance cameras on high-crime Chicago street corners may soon be equipped with new software that makes it easier to catch bad guys who drive or park nearby -- by scanning the license plates of up to 3,600 parked or moving vehicles an hour.

The Chicago Police Department is exploring the idea of installing Big Brother software on 300 "blue light" cameras -- along with the possibility of adding the plate-reading function to video cameras now installed in 30 squad cars to record traffic stops.
