Victoria Police Select Motorola for US$12M Number Plate Recognition System
Thursday, October 18, 2018 | Comments

Victoria Police deployed number plate recognition and in-car video technology from Motorola Solutions. The five-year, statewide managed service contract is valued at about A$17.3 million (US$12.3 million) and will equip 220 highway patrol vehicles with the latest in-car video technology.

The high-resolution, cloud-based automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology enables police to rapidly scan through thousands of vehicle number plates to identify dangerous and unauthorized drivers in real time. This helps police to detect stolen and unregistered vehicles and crack down on offences including traffic violations, speeding and more.

The solution will also increase protection and accountability for interactions between police and the public through the collection of high-quality video and audio recordings that can be submitted as evidence in court.

The technology is vital to achieving the goals outlined in Towards Zero, the Victorian Government’s plan to make roads safer while striving for the ultimate goal of zero deaths on Victorian roads. The mobile number plate program will complement other systems being used by Victoria Police, including its BlueConnect Mobile Technology program.

“By combining ANPR detection with in-car video, this solution will provide high quality visual and audio corroboration of incidents and offences witnessed by police,” said Motorola Solutions Vice President and Managing Director Steve Crutchfield. “Solutions like this have been proven to increase accountability and even make individuals modify their behavior when they know they are being filmed, contributing to greater safety for all road users and police officers.”
