Cuyahoga County License Plate Readers




There are 20 fixed sites where 80 license plate readers are mounted at specific intersections throughout Cuyahoga County with more planned for the future. The cameras read license plates and run them against a hotlist provided by the state. License plate images are stored for one year in a secure warehouse which can be accessed online by law enforcement personnel in Northeast Ohio. The tool is designed to combat terrorism and crime.
