All police vehicles in the Combined Traffic Services Saskatchewan pilot are now equipped with automated licence plate readers.
SGI provided 800 thousand dollars to purchase 32 additional ALPRs for CTSS vehicles, in support of new impaired driving laws which took effect January 1st.
ALPRs use infra-red technology to scan licence plates and alert police when the plate is linked to a stolen or unregistered vehicle, a suspended driver or a person wanted by police.
15 of the devices were installed in late November and early December of 2016.
The remaining 17 were installed this week.
