Kenosha, WI police looking at advanced license plate recognition technology to recover stolen vehicles

Local law enforcement officers could soon have an easier time tracking down and recovering stolen vehicles.

The Kenosha Police Department is looking to finalize a contract with Vigilant Solutions, a Livermore, Calif.-based corporation that develops and designs advanced software systems for photographing vehicles, as well as capturing license plate data with date, time and GPS coordinates.

The City Council will consider a proposed enterprise agreement for system maintenance at its meeting Wednesday night. Last week the Public Safety and Welfare Committee voted 5-0 approving the agreement.
