Police Department installing automated license plate readers

The Oak Park Police Department is planning to install eight Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) units this summer at various locations in the community. ALPR systems capture an image of a vehicle’s license plate, read the image using software, compare the plate number read against databases containing stolen vehicles and, ultimately, alert an officer when the system has captured the license plate of a vehicle of interest. Find more information and details about the Police Department’s guidelines for use, privacy and storage on the Village website at
