Sheriff McMahill described how, using license plate reading cameras at the state line, Las Vegas Metro Police were able to apprehend seven California Murder suspects fleeing to Vegas. The program was such a success that his department is purchasing $2 million worth of Flock Cameras. Flock’s website states “Whether you’re a homeowner, business, property manager, school, or law enforcement, LPR is the key to reducing crime in your community. Our cameras capture objective vehicle data, including license plate numbers and vehicle descriptions, 24/7. Our user-friendly software offers real-time hot list alerts, searchable evidence, and vehicle analytics, empowering officers to improve response times during critical incidents and streamline investigations.” In addition to license plate reading cameras, Sheriff McMahill plans to deploy other advanced technologies to fight crime, including the purchase of new robots and drones to seek out gunfire in neighborhoods plagued by gangs and high crime.
