THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~~ November 23, 2022 (LNSews) The provincial government is investing $286,324 to help the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) implement Automated License Plate Recognition Technology (ALPR).
“These funds will help enhance the system that is in place to alert officers to stolen or expired plates, or plates registered to suspended drivers,” noted Thunder Bay-Atikokan MPP Kevin Holland. “This can also notify officers of missing and wanted persons and vehicles associated with AMBER alerts, which will be beneficial in northwestern Ontario.”
The Automated Licence Plate Recognition Technology Grant is a one-time grant to help police services strengthen roadside law enforcement efforts and improve public safety across the province.
“This investment further demonstrates our government’s plan to ensure police services across Ontario have the resources and equipment they need to keep our communities safe,” said Solicitor General Michael Kerzner. “I am confident that this tool will be a tremendous asset to police services and help them combat incidents of auto theft and enhance public safety.”
