Massachusetts Should Facilitate – Not Inhibit – Law Enforcement Use of License Plate Data

State and federal lawmakers have increasingly moved to target a powerful technology used by law enforcement to solve crimes and save lives.

NetChoice has released a white paper for Massachusetts law makers exploring the basis for these legislative attacks, and separating fact from fiction as it relates to automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) technology.

The paper identifies a strong legislative structure already in place to protect consumers and highlights the negative impact of lawmakers targeting specific technology, rather than technology-neutral behavior.
