ANPR Survey

Closed 2 Dec 2018

Opened 9 Oct 2018


The London Borough of Redbridge, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service, is intending to install an extra 41 Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras across the Borough of Redbridge to capture vehicle movements on key routes through the identification of the vehicle registration mark (VRM) of individual vehicles.

The provision of a wide range of CCTV coverage, including introducing an increased ANPR network linked to the Police’s national infrastructure, will ensure greater levels of security are experienced through:

  • public awareness that there is wide coverage within the borough
  • providing a deterrent to those entering borough with the intention of committing criminal activities

This will lead to not only to safer streets but also to the creation of a cleaner environment with CCTV locations at known hot spots for fly tipping and littering from vehicles being established. The ANPR data will be used to help the authority and police track and identify vehicles of interest whilst also aiding in local authority enforcement activities.

The sites of the ANPR equipment have been determined by the Police in conjunction with the local authority using analysis of key factors such as:

  • the volume of traffic using the road
  • whether the road is an arterial route
  • the proximity to crime and criminality hotspots
  • levels and patterns of vehicle crime

Why We Are Consulting

We want to consult with the community to obtain views and feedback about the introduction of additional ANPR cameras and the introduction of dot matrix VRM display ANPR.
