Use Case: Bay Area City Combating Illegal Dumping

The Problem: A Bay Area city had to monitor almost two hundred illegal dumping hotspots, fielding up to a hundred calls daily. Even after the creation of a dedicated taskforce, preventing illegal dumping was costly.

The Solution: The city deployed V5 Portable License Plate Reader (V5 PSU-LPR) to capture offenders’ license plates in outdoor areas without power.

 The Results: In less than a year, the city has seen no service requests in areas where units are deployed. The units act as a deterrent and provide forensic evidence, with several citations being issued based on the LPR data.
