ALPR Case Studies

Survail is a Law Enforcement investigation tool that analyzes your cities video surveillance footage to find every license plate possible on every camera in your network (even on cameras that aren’t dedicated to ALPR) and then allows you to map every-where and every-when a particular license plate has been seen.

Your investigators can instantly find everywhere a suspects license plate was seen on any set of days and clearly see the path they took through your city. Tie suspects, witnesses or victims to crime scenes, locations and/or times using warrant-less license plate surveillance searches of your own video surveillance network. See how Law Enforcement Agencies are solving real crimes today with the power of ALPR.

Search warrants issued to search associates houses in other jurisdictions. Murder weapon recovered from edge of lake. Case Closed.

Burglary: Stuck Case

The Crime:

Series of burglaries of cannabis dispensaries late at night. Case has been stuck for lack of evidence tying the suspect to the scenes.
