ANPR Consultation

ANPR Consultation

We are writing to let you know that we are planning a significant investment to extend the ANPR network in Northamptonshire and further crack down on crime in the county.

We intend to invest £1.3 million to add around 100 fixed cameras to the county's ANPR network. These would be located on the county's borders, at key arterial routes, at strategic locations in rural areas an in our major towns. We have selected sites on the basis of analysis and soon we will launch a consultation to ask you for your views on any proposals to locate new cameras in your area.

Our aim is to give Northamptonshire Police access to as much technological support as possible in the fight to disrupt, deter and investigate crime - ANPR cameras support police in the arrests of hundreds of offenders every year.

We also want criminals to get the message that Northamptonshire is not a soft touch for criminals and deter people who would come to our county to commit crime.

Please be reassured that the legislation is clear – and we are both committed to this principle – that the use of data and information collected by ANPR cameras is only used in the prevention and detection of crime and, in some cases, to safeguard vulnerable adults.

We will be back in touch in due course with information about the consultation but in the meantime, we have enclosed a factsheet that explains more about ANPR and how it is used and if you have more questions, please do email us on anpr@northants.pnn.police.uk
