ANPR Brings Breakthrough In High Profile Murder Enquiry

ELSAG North America : 01 November, 2010  (Application Story)
Suspect in university professor murder case in America captured after the victim's car was recognised with ELSAG licence plate recognition system
Hours after ELSAG North America announces the newest product in their line of Digital Automatic License Plate Recognition Systems at the 117th Annual Meeting of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, DC area police report that they have received a major break in the high-profile murder of American University professor Sue Ann Marcum because of the technology.

13 hours after the Montgomery County Police discovered Professor Marcum's body an alarm from a recently installed All-In-One Licence Plate Recognition System alerted police that her missing Jeep was in the area. Officers were dispatched to the site of the alarm and apprehended an 18-year-old suspect after a chase.

"Our prayers are with the Marcum family that this major break in the case will lead to the apprehension and conviction of professor Marcum's murderer," said ELSAG North America CEO, Mark Windover. "This scenario proves the effectiveness of our license plate recognition systems. We are dedicated to providing the Law Enforcement Community with the best products to assist them in their mission and ability to bring justice to cases like the murder of Professor Sue Ann Marcum."

The deployment of these new All-In-One cameras are part of a Department of Homeland Security grant providing 31 jurisdictions in the National Capitol Region with $3.2 million for licence plate recognition equipment.
