Kent Police: ANPR Consultation
It is proposed that an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera will be installed near one of the main routes into Hythe in order to increase coverage within the area.
This is something that police forces intend to do countywide. ANPRs are used to help to detect, deter and disrupt criminality including tackling travelling criminals, organised crime groups and terrorists and they are used to assist with evidence in the investigation of crime.
Community engagement regarding the roll out of cameras is necessary prior to installation being approved. If you would like offer any views on the proposed installation of a camera in Hythe, please send your comments (support/objections/general views etc) to Sandgate Parish Council at firstname.lastname@example.org. The parish clerk will then forward your comments to the local PCSO.
Please note that the exact location cannot be disclosed as this may compromise and undermine the objective in preventing and detecting crime by being a benefit to offenders and could reduce the value of ANPR to policing.
