ACLU: CT Towns Keep License Plate Scan Data

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut filed a Freedom of Information Act request and learned that a police in ten towns compiled a database of more than 3 million license plate scans by patrol cars.

The pubic can get access to this, and even search it to determine when and where individual cars were seen.

St. Rep. Gary Holder-Winfield is proposing a new law that would restrict police use of license plate scans and reduce the amount of time that police departments can keep it on file.

We have calls out to Representative Winfield and the ACLU to learn more about this.

    It’s time to have Rep. Winfield voted out. Big deal the police track plates. Thank god for them and the protection they provide. If you’re not doing anything illegal you have nothing to worry about.
