Overview
The primary purpose of the Muncie Police Department Automated License Plate Readers (ALPR) system is to provide a tool for use by Patrol and Criminal Investigations personnel. This tool assists in the detection and apprehension of vehicles and/or persons traveling through the jurisdiction of the Muncie Police Department in a vehicle that has license plates that have been entered either into the National Crime Index Computer or on the MPD ALPR Hotlist. The ALPR system can also be utilized by MPD Detectives to assist in the development of leads that can eventually identify suspects who have committed crimes within the city.
