Bradford gets city wide ANPR technology

Bradford has implemented a ‘net’ of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras to deter criminal activity in the cityThere are 90 cameras in total and are able to operate in day and night and any adverse weather conditions. The council plan to use the network of cameras to measure journey times whilst West Yorkshire Police are to use the system to track vehicles that may have been used in criminal activities. As the area covered by the cameras is fairly small, they have all routes in and out of the city covered. A list published by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau in 2009 shows Barkerend in Bradford as UK’s uninsured driver capital. In the 6 months since West Yorkshire Police set up the Bradford South Road Policing Unit in October 2009 they had impounded more than 530 vehicles.
