Real Time Crime with MOBOTIX Cameras
Real Time Crime (RTC) was established by the Westchester County Police Department and its partners in 2017, aiming to unify collaboration across the county’s 40+ police departments. RTC’s arsenal includes a combination of surveillance, machine learning analytics, license plate recognition (LPR), and shared police databases. One of the largest LPR systems in the USA, RTC scans & archives approximately 40 million plates a month across 220 MOBOTIX cameras aimed at their highways. These plates can generate real-time alerts via a robust software platform, and the archived database is searchable by plate number, vehicle color, make, model, vehicle type, and other characteristics.
In 2020 alone, RTC captured 243 million license plates and has contributed to over 200 arrests, 102 recovered stolen vehicles, and generates approximately 330,000 alerts a month for the department. RTC was able to coordinate with agencies on the following multi-agency investigations: burglaries, robberies, stolen vehicles and vehicle break-ins. S74 deployments have been implemented into several different police departments within Westchester County, with plans to expand this footprint even further. Mobile LPR expands the agency’s ability to monitor areas previously unreachable at an attainable cost and allows agencies to better secure not only their community, but any of their networked communities as well. “It’s priceless. Without it, multiple cases would be left unsolved. It’s a great tool for both proactive and reactive policing.” says Det. Justin Bottiglieri at the neighboring Hastings Police Department.
