There is a growing concern over the data captured through Automated License Plate Readers (ALPR) technology, even though the captured data is anonymous. The data is limited to license plate image, location, and time of capture. The information linking license plates to individuals or businesses is restricted, controlled, and audited by the government. Vehicle license plates consist of a series of alphanumeric characters that reference the registered owner and vehicle history. They also include information like make, model, year, or VIN for specific vehicles.
Typically law enforcement and security personnel with proper clearance can access and cross-reference these databases.
