ANPR Statistics

Christopher Nolan made this Freedom of Information request to Kent Police

The request was partially successful.

From: Christopher Nolan

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

Dear Ms Potten,

Many thanks for your response.

I accept that, given the reasons described, complete disclosure would have a potentially negative effect on policing efforts in Kent; thank you for the detailed reasoning in this regard.

Yours sincerely,

Christopher Nolan
