Have your say on police using ANPR

People across the High Peak are being urged to give their thoughts around Derbyshire Police using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR).

ANPR technology is used by police forces across the UK to help detect, deter and disrupt criminality, including organised crime groups and terrorists.

The registration plate cameras are governed by strict codes of practice.

They are most commonly used to alert officers to stolen vehicles, vehicles that have been involved in crime or to help locate missing people. The data they collect can also be used in investigations.

A Derbyshire Police spokesperson said: "ANPR is a vital tool to help policing stay one step ahead of criminals and better protect people. Your views play an important part in how we do this. The anonymous survey will only take a few minutes of your time to complete."
