Guilford, CT Police Premier License Plate Reader Project

The saying is “what’s in a name,” but in this case it’s what’s in a license plate. The Guilford Police is getting ready to deploy some new technology through the License Plate Reader Project that will help police officers more efficiently identify if a particular plate should spark any cause for further investigation.

Guilford Chief of Police Jeff Hutchinson spoke to the Board of Selectmen (BOS) about the program at its meeting on Dec. 3. The program is a pilot program with the Connecticut State Police and a few other towns in the area and is designed to help police identify vehicles with specific alerts and improve communication sharing among various police organizations.
