License Plate Readers
The East Cocalico Township Police Department recently purchased three automated License Plate Readers from Rekor Systems. The LPRs, which are mounted in patrol vehicles, scan license plates at real time and compare the plates to a database which can determine if a vehicle is stolen or a plate is suspended or expired. The readers were put into service on Monday February 10, 2020. On Tuesday February 11, 2020, an East Cocalico Township Police Officer utilizing the LPR located a stolen vehicle in the first block of Bill Drive. The vehicle was recovered and charges are pending against a male in that incident.
