Automated license-plate readers work 24/7

By Sam Sweeney

SOMERS POINT, N.J. — New technology mounted on the side of police cars is allowing police to keep the roads safer. They are advanced cameras capturing your license plate and if you haven't seen them, they have probably seen you.

"It’s one of our most modern fighting tools," patrolman James Shields said. Officer Shields is talking about cameras permanently mounted on the back of his patrol car scanning thousands of license plates every 24 hours.

As officer Shields cruises down the street, the cameras are snapping a picture of every single car he passes and instantly checking them, any violations pop up on a screen mounted in the car. Every picture captured is stored with a GPS location. As patrol cars make their rounds they capture every car on every street, allowing investigators to connect the dots when crime happens.
