Remington ELSAG Law Enforcement Systems Wins Fed Contract
MADISON, N.C. - Remington ELSAG Law Enforcement Systems has been awarded a contract from the United States General Services Administration (GSA) through 2010 for its license plate reader (LPR) technology. The GSA listing includes the RELES Mobile Plate Hunter 900 and Fixed Plate Hunter 900 and related goods and services.
“We are proud to support our law enforcement agency partners through our GSA contract. RELES technology is helping law enforcement across the United States and abroad" stated Remington ELSAG President, Mark Windover. The RELES LPR systems can read plates from all US states and most foreign countries, including Arabic characters. The system works in real time to identify vehicles of interest allowing officers to prepare for safe and immediate interdiction. Both LPR systems capture key vehicle-related data, which can be analyzed for criminal intelligence, providing for both “white list” and “black list” management.
GSA Contracts are the most convenient way for federal buyers to purchase commercial goods and services because they cut the time and expense associated with requesting and evaluating quotes, bids or proposals. Remington ELSAG’s GSA contract includes all the components of their Mobile Plate Hunter series including both fixed and mobile units.
The system consists of advanced cameras and proprietary software that captures photographic images of license plates, translates the visual characters into numbers and letters, and then compares each plate to pre-loaded Hot Lists in order to identify vehicles of interest right on the spot. The technology also captures date and time stamps, as well as GPS coordinates, which can aid criminal intelligence efforts by placing a suspect at a scene, identifying possible witnesses and more.
Already deployed in over 200 US state, local and federal agencies, the MPH 900 and FPH 900 systems are quickly gaining attention with the law enforcement community as they are credited with assisting in the resolution of thousands of vehicle-related crimes over the past 2 years. “With seventy percent of criminal activity tied to a vehicle, quickly capturing and interpreting license plate data is critical to the law enforcement mission,” added Windover.
