Automatic License Plate Recognition Technology

The Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) System is a license plate recognition program that allows vehicles observed by cameras to have their license plate read and recorded.

The ALPR program was initiated by the RCMP in concert with the Government of British Columbia Ministry of Solicitor General Police Services Division. This project represents a multi-agency endeavor and includes Major Crime / Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) and BC Highway Patrol. 

The ALPR goal is to reduce auto theft and motor vehicle violations in particular those related to prohibited, suspended, unlicensed and uninsured drivers. The ALPR program assists in the recovery of stolen vehicles, property and related vehicle criminality.
