On MOSY-enabled police cars, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) / automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) greatly increases mobile police officers’ information processing and crime fighting capabilities.


When out on patrol, police officers can instantly check for stolen and fleeing vehicles, non-insured vehicles, unpaid tolls and fines, traffic and parking zone eligibility, and roadworthiness, safety and emission test status – and any other hotlist criteria.

ANPR has major benefits. According to statistics of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, up to 70% of serious crime is linked to the theft of motor vehicles or their use in committing crimes. Analyses and statistics show that ANPR systems are particularly useful in locating stolen cars and missing persons, and with investigating robberies and kidnappings.
