Acting Commissioner flags new ‘number plate recognition’ technology for WA police
Acting Police Commissioner Col Blanch wants WA police to have access to “number plate recognition” technology, but says it would have to be used ethically.
“It helps us with stolen cars, wanted people, terrorists, organised crime,” he told Gareth Parker on 6PR Breakfast.
“It might have a lot of reads but most of them aren’t used and are just purged.
“But the ones we need get captured and get alerted down at our state operations command very quickly.”
