ANPR Consultation

The Use of ANPR in Dyfed-Powys

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology is used by Dyfed-Powys Police to help detect, deter and disrupt criminality. It is a powerful tool in assisting us in protecting communities and those most vulnerable in our society.

Rules to control access to ANPR data are directly adhered to in order that all searches are for a policing purpose.  Only permitted staff are allowed to conduct searches.

Dyfed-Powys Police is committed to ensuring the deployment of ANPR technology across the force area is necessary and proportionate.  We regularly review the location of our cameras to ensure their continued use remains justified.  All reviews consider the impact on privacy.

In line with national policy, we do not disclose details of our fixed camera locations as this is likely to benefit offenders and will reduce the value of ANPR to detecting, deterring and disrupting criminality in Dyfed-Powys.
