The Lafayette Police Department is using Flock Automatic License Plate Readers (ALPRs) to help detect and reduce crime in our community. Flock ALPRs are stationary ALPR cameras located within Municipal - Right of Ways and are self-sufficient. They are powered by solar panels and send image information through government-standard encrypted cell signals. The ALPRs capture objective evidence without compromising on individual privacy. Lafayette Police Department utilizes retroactive searches to solve crimes after they have occurred. Additionally, Lafayette Police Department utilizes real time alerting of hotlist vehicles to capture wanted criminals and missing endangered children and adults. In an effort to ensure proper usage and guardrails are in place, the Lafayette Police Department has our policies and usage statistics available to the public on the Lafayette Police Department website at
