ANPR system from ELSAG gains COPLINK compliance

ELSAG North America : 12 November, 2008  (New Product)
Coplink compliance enables information retrieved from MPH-900 number plate recognition system to be shared by US law enforcement bodies.
ELSAG North America Law Enforcement Systems and Knowledge Computing Corporation have announced that all data collected by ELSAG's MPH-900 system is now Coplink compliant and will be offered as another data source within Coplink. ELSAG's license plate recognition technology system is the only one available to law enforcement that is Coplink compliant. This strategic partnership between the two companies will benefit information sharing and intelligence-led policing initiatives among law enforcement agencies. The announcement was made at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) 115th Annual Conference and Exposition taking place this week in San Diego, California.

ELSAG North America is the market leader in automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology with its Mobile Plate Hunter, the MPH-900. The camera system, which can be stationary or mounted on police vehicles, captures images of all surrounding license plates, runs them against law enforcement databases for sought-after vehicles and alerts officers when a wanted vehicle is nearby.

Knowledge Computing Corporation's Coplink solution software is the leading end-to-end tactical analysis and lead generation software for fighting crime and terrorism. Together, the companies will enable integration of data obtained from ELSAG's license plate recognition system with the Coplink solution.

ANPR data is a crucial intelligence asset for use in threat mitigation, crime prevention and criminal case resolution for public safety, law enforcement and criminal justice agencies. The Coplink software organises and rapidly analyses vast quantities of structured and seemingly unrelated data, currently housed in various incompatible databases and record management systems, over a highly secure intranet-based platform. ELSAG North America and Knowledge Computing Corporation will integrate their data with existing intelligence assets that will produce an unprecedented ability for their mutual clients to leverage the assets of the MPH-900 in order to reduce threats, prevent crime and successfully resolve criminal cases.

"The unique nature of the ANPR data is that it unequivocally testifies to the date, time and location of a particular vehicle," stated Mark Windover, President and CEO of ELSAG North America. "The addition of ELSAG's ANPR data greatly enhances the value that Coplink provides to law enforcement agencies. With Coplink, the associations between crimes and the presence of vehicles of interest, and persons of interest is visually represented to the investigator. "

This capability of visual representation is a key factor in aiding law enforcement. The vehicle date, time and location information may be used to draw associations between persons of interest and previously undiscovered associates. This is why ELSAG and Coplink have taken actions to ensure that these additional intelligence assets are available to their mutual clients to assist them with their mission.

ELSAG North America's MPH-900 is currently used by nearly 500 agencies in 30 states across the US. It has many applications and has aided in everything from traffic safety to intelligence gathering to apprehending stolen vehicles.
