License Plate Reader Project
The LEIT Executive Board sponsored development of a Privacy Impact Assessment Report for the Utilization of License Plate Readers (PDF). The objective was to assess the impact LPR systems can have on the public’s privacy interests and to establish recommendations for the development of information management policies intended to govern an agency’s operation of a LPR system.
