Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology is used within West Mercia to help detect, deter and disrupt criminality at a local, force, regional and national level, including tackling travelling criminals, organised crime groups and terrorists. ANPR provides lines of enquiry and evidence in the investigation of crime and is used by forces throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
