The automatic license plate readers are high-speed cameras that take pictures of plates and turn them into searchable data.

Atlanta-based Flock Safety installed several of the cameras around the Indianapolis area.

Spokesperson Holly Beilin said the ALPR cameras help law enforcement investigate crime by providing objective evidence.

“We can capture the license plate. We can also capture the make, the type, the color, identifying characteristics of the vehicle and pull all of that objective evidence to get to law enforcement to help them clear more cases faster,” Beilin said.

Some of the law enforcement agencies using the cameras include Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Indiana State Police, Franklin, Plainfield, Greenwood, Greenfield, and Noblesville.
