Community Meeting: License Plate Reading Cameras


At the December 7, 2021, Council meeting, a Resolution to authorize the mayor to enter into an agreement with Flock Group Inc. was introduced for a vote. The service provides an automated platform that creates images and recordings of the suspect vehicle's rear license plate to help eliminate crime. The plate information is connected to the NCIC and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Databases. Nineteen (19) plate reading cameras would be installed throughout the city.

I asked the Council to postpone the vote to the second meeting in February to allow me time to organize a community meeting. I would like to hear from you, the community, of questions or concerns. My goal would be to propose sound public policy if the program were approved. I have creating a poll and hosting a Community Meeting on February 2, 2022, @ 6 P.M. at the American Legion Post 10 located at 830 Willett Ave. in Riverside.
