Fort Jackson, a U.S. Army installation in South Carolina, has added two fixed automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) cameras from NDI Recognition Systems (NDI-RS) to its existing ALPR deployments. Fort Jackson is the largest U.S. Army training center, training more than 50,000 soldiers each year.
Fort Jackson uses ALPR cameras from NDI-RS to monitor vehicles on the base, which covers more than 52,000 acres. By using cameras from NDI-RS, Fort Jackson is able to take advantage of ALPR servers provided by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), which maintains a statewide license plate database for all law enforcement agencies in South Carolina, using software from NDI-RS. This allows South Carolina agencies to implement ALPR from NDI-RS very efficiently and cost-effectively, since there is no cost for back-end servers or user licenses, and no extended implementation period.
“Using the NDI-RS back office maintained by SLED, agencies get real-time data from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), and SLED itself. This enhances security and improves safety for the Fort Jackson training center.”
