Orillia OPP vehicles updated with automated licence plate recognition and in-car-cameras

The technology will also notify officers of vehicles associated with AMBER Alerts

News release – Orillia OPP

Orillia OPP have installed and activated the Automated Licence Plate Recognition (ALPR) and In-Car-Camera systems in all patrol vehicles. 

OPP have invested in technology that will notify the officers operating patrol vehicles of the information related to vehicle licence plates that are not valid, are wanted or missing persons, stolen vehicles, stolen and unattached plates, suspended/prohibited drivers and vehicles associated with AMBER Alerts. This will support officers in maintaining a safer community and input data at a faster rate than human input.

Furthermore, Orillia Detachment patrol vehicles will be equipped with in-car cameras. The OPP strives to continue to display transparency, professionalism, accountability, as well as investigative excellence to our communities. 

The Orillia Detachment continues to see drivers operating vehicles that do not have valid registered plates. Although vehicle owners are not required to purchase a validation sticker for their vehicle, licence plates are still required to be renewed to be valid annually or bi-annually. 

Members of the Orillia OPP are committed to public safety, delivering proactive and innovative policing in partnership with our communities. Officers value your contribution to building safe communities.

If you have information about suspected unlawful activity, please contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous at 1-800-822-8477 (TIPS) or www.crimestopperssdm.com.
