[ARCHIVED] Using Our ALPR System

Police Officer Dan Lynch

In April 2018, I was working night time patrol on the weekend shift.  A local business downtown was broken into and several items were stolen.  The business owner was able to provide me with a grainy photo of a suspect vehicle.   

 I was able to use our ALPR system to identify the only vehicle that matched the suspect vehicle in the area during the burglary.  I entered the vehicle as a felony wanted vehicle in a statewide database.  The next night the vehicle was stopped in a neighboring jurisdiction and the suspect was identified.   

 As a result of the investigation, we were able to file burglary charges on the suspect and hold him accountable for stealing from our Danville business.  It was great to have a resource like ALPR that allowed me to make a case when otherwise I would not have been able to do so. 

 For more information on the ALPR system, contact Lieutenant Doug Muse at (925) 314-3700 or
