The Durham Constabulary has deployed a Federal Signal digital video and analytics system with advanced automated number/licence plate reading technology to protect its community from cross-border criminals.
The Durham Constabulary serves a population of more than 595,000 residents in County Durham in England’s north-east region.
The Federal Signal digital video and analytics system features Federal Signal Spike+ automated number plate reading (ANPR) cameras by PIPS, which are situated on key roadways in Durham County.
Number plates of all the passing vehicles are compared with the Police National Computer (PNC) database. Any known or suspected criminal vehicles are monitored and their location checked if a crime is committed while they are in the county.
