Fortunately, I never dated anyone named "Dave" so I think I'm in the clear.

Sorry Conan, we have you on tape with Dave.

I have no idea if there will be a country-wide government conspiracy to track individuals using this tech.



I think "collaboration" and "meeting minimal metrics" are their preferred terms.

On average, agencies are sharing data with a minimum of 160 other agencies through Vigilant Solutionsí LEARN system, though many agencies are sharing data with over 800 separate entities.

Public surveillance for private profit is spreading into communities under the cover of promises of convenience and increased safety.
Police in Texas faced pressure from contracts with Vigilant which included vague references to quotas for how many cars the agencies needed to pull over. Failing to meet that quota would mean losing the system for the department.

Don't forget about the REPO guys.  My car is paid-for but many are not.  They need to stay off private parking lots.  We see them driving through my employer's parking lot occasionally.  Angry

They need permission to be on private property, though many of them don't bother to ask. My security guard son has had a few run-ins with them. The scanner car cruises the parking lot and if he gets a hit, he then calls for a tow truck.

They make extra money selling their scans to the ALPR data brokers, and there is no law to stop them.  People who had the misfortune of parking near gay bars have been forced to pay blackmailers who use these scanners with impunity.

Seriously, there needs to be regulation.  There isnt any.

A south Tulsa neighborhood has installed new technology to help catch criminals.

They installed a Flock Safety system that includes wireless cameras that read license plates. As cars drive through the neighborhood, the camera takes a series of pictures of the vehicles and their license plates with a date and time.

In a FOX23 investigation, FOX23's Janna Clark learned some people argue the system is more "big brother" than crime fighter, but others say it makes them feels safe.

Tulsa police said it could help them solve crimes because they rarely get video that shows license plates that are legible.

The neighborhood homeowner's association leases the cameras from Flock. The company takes care of any issues with the technology.

Surprise! The data goes to Amazon Web Services...

The companyís goal is to capture every plate and use that information to reveal patterns. A plate shot outside an apartment at 5 a.m. tells you thatís probably where the driver spends the night, no matter their listed home address. So if a repo order comes in for a car, the agent already knows where to look.

Repo agents are responsible for the majority of the billions of license plate scans produced nationwide. But they donít control the information. Most of that data is owned by Digital Recognition Network (DRN), a Fort Worth company that is the largest provider of license-plate-recognition systems. And DRN sells the information to insurance companies, private investigators ó even other repo agents.
