Harrison County Sheriff's Office: Automated License Plate Readers
|Agency||Harrison County Sheriff's Office|
|Technology||Automated License Plate Readers|
The Harrison County Sheriff's Office receives alerts from automated license plate readers that were installed through a joint effort by many cities in West Virginia. In 2018, the sheriff's office used grant money from the West Virginia Department of Homeland Security to install ALPRs at the U.S. 50/Interstate 79 intersection.

Automated license plate readers are cameras attached to fixed locations or to patrol cars that capture every license plate that passes. The data is uploaded to searchable databases with the time, date, and GPS coordinates.
