Boynton Beach Police enhance license plate recognition program

While out on patrol, officers received notification that a stolen Honda Accord was traveling southbound on North Seacrest Boulevard.
The officers stopped the car and detained the driver, who was later charged with theft of motor vehicle and possession of crack cocaine.
The technology that provided information about the stolen car is referred to as Automated License Plate Recognition, and the Boynton Beach Police Department recently initiated enhancements to the capacity of their solution.
“We are committed to reducing crime and improving safety and security in the city,” Chief Michael G. Gregory said. “With the ALPR enhancements, we are investing in technology that will allow us to prevent and deter crime as a modern 21st century police department.”
The Boynton Beach Police Department has been using this technology in a limited fashion for the past three years. The Automated License Plate Recognition system is being enhanced to expand our capacity to identify vehicles of interest, as well as stolen and suspect vehicles in partnership with Verra Mobility, the city’s red-light safety camera provider. The city’s most recent red-light camera agreement included the cost of the ALPR system to the monthly red-light camera fee, allowing the police department to deploy the technology in a cost effective manner.
CheckPlate, Verra Mobility’s ALPR solution, provides law enforcement agencies with additional intelligence needed to expand their investigative capabilities, identify vehicles of interest and most importantly, solve crimes.
“As a smart transportation mobility provider, finding new and innovative ways to meet the needs of our customers is at the core of our business,” said Charles Territo, Senior Vice President of Verra Mobility. “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Boynton Beach on this important public safety initiative.”
