Below is a photo gallery documenting the use of automatic license plate reader (ALPR) units in our communities. Browse to learn how to recognize ALPR units and contribute to the documentation of tag readers in your community by sending in your photos and descriptions.


Wonder if those cameras that you see are tag readers? In Washington, D.C. all you need to do is check out the electric / computer box mounted to the same pole they are on. They actually are labeled ELSAG, along with identification of the MPH-900 model number tag reader.
