Police and Crime Commissioner decision:


Signature Date 12 November 2013
Title Police & Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire

Part 1 – Unrestricted facts and advice to the PCC

Introduction and background

ANPR is an invaluable tool for the police to disrupt travelling criminals and deny the use of the road network to commit crime.

ANPR cameras work by scanning vehicle registration numbers and checking them against information stored in databases to identify vehicles connected to criminality.

It can be used locally across force, regional borders and nationally allowing effective, collaborative responses to ongoing incidents and investigations.

ANPR has already proven its worth as an invaluable tool in bringing criminals to justice and making our communities safer. This latest investment sends a clear warning to criminals that North Yorkshire Police is determined to keep them out of our county and the organisation will do everything in its power to stop them.

There is a functioning ANPR system in operation based on CCTV cameras but these cameras are not able to meet the required NAASP standards.

These ANPR proposals support key elements of the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan, and show NYP is investing in the future to reduce harm to individuals and communities suffering from cross border crime and rural crime.

Is there a Part 2 to this Notice – YES
Reason for restriction: The information in part 2 is properly classified as at least RESTRICTED within the meaning of the Government Protective Marking Scheme.
