To address ongoing community concerns around illegal parking, an $80,000 state-of-the-art Pinforce LPR system was purchased and deployed by Council early in 2018 to monitor parking activity across the city.
PinForce LPR is a vehicle mounted mobile Licence Plate Recognition system. Managing the ever increasing parking demands on a finite resource is a demanding job and PinForce LPR addresses this challenge by using technology to automate many of the time-consuming functions:
- Reading a parked vehicle’s number plate whilst simultaneously taking pictures of the parked vehicle.
- Searching a database hotlist for residential permits, warnings, vehicles of interest and stolen vehicles.
- Providing electronic ’chalking for each vehicle it passes and automatically alerting the officer to any offending vehicle after a second pass once the parking restriction has lapsed
PinForce LPR links to a variety of on-board databases enabling a wide range of parking and vehicle compliance issues to be managed simultaneously, including residential and permit parking, wanted and stolen vehicles and more. Officers can be alerted in real-time of vehicle overstays and vehicles of interest. Find out more about the Pinforce LPR system on their website.
