How License Plate Cameras Benefit Apartment Communities and Neighborhoods
While License plate cameras are often used by law enforcement agencies to track known offenders, it can be used as a beneficial asset in multifamily communities and neighborhoods to hold individuals liable for property damages, criminal behavior, and other unwanted activities.
Most surveillance cameras that are utilized are not powerful enough to capture facial details or focused on capturing data for identification.
A License Plate Recognition camera, also known as LPR, is a specialized type of video surveillance camera, designed to capture alphanumeric characters found on license plates to identify vehicles.
In the United States, all states require drivers to have at least one license plate displayed on the rear of their vehicle.
Law enforcement agencies are able to use license plate information to effectively investigate incidents and prosecute suspects.
While standard surveillance cameras are great at recording general activity,
License Plate Recognition (LPR) are identification-focused and can greatly enhance existing security camera systems.
The best way to fight crime is to deter it, not after the fact and trying to catch the criminal.
While all crime is dumb, not all criminals are.
A multifamily community or neighborhood utilizing security cameras and license plate recognition cameras can greatly deter bad actors as they, the criminals, know there is a high chance that they can be identified.
Making the public aware that the property utilizes security and advance systems is highly recommended.
