ANPR Statistics

Christopher Nolan made this Freedom of Information request to Kent Police

The request was partially successful.

From: Christopher Nolan

11 August 2009

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to request the following information under the Freedom
of Information legislation.

1. The total number of images recorded/processed by the ANPR system
in the Kent region in 2008.

2. The total number of these images that were flagged as "vehicles
of interest" in 2008.

3. The total number of arrests made due to an ANPR lead being
followed (i.e. pulling over of a vehicle) in 2008.

4. The location of all ANPR sites currently in use by Kent Police.

In relation to point four, I do not believe the release of this
data would undermine any policing activities as the camera
installations are extremely obvious at the road side with no
attempt made to hide their locations.

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Nolan
