The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a $335,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to purchase an Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) camera system for the Sheriff Department's Advanced Surveillance and Protection (ASAP) project, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced.

At a cost of $35,000, the camera system will be installed in a specialized patrol vehicle in the Temple Sheriff's Station's jurisdiction and its five contract cities.

Additionally, $300,000 of the grant will be utilized for the Department's Gang CopLink project to upgrade its gang database to allow for greater information sharing among 46 law enforcement agencies.

The Board of Supervisors approved a $200,000 grant from the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services for the 2009 COPS Technology Program to help implement the ALPR System, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced.

The primary purpose of this program is to improve public safety by enabling federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to make more effective use of ALPR technology to investigate crimes, improve homeland security, and locate wanted persons and stolen vehicles.
