Thirty-nine Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) cameras installed at 20 intersections in the City of Chino for a 60-day pilot program have proven to be successful and will remain in place permanently.
The city council on Nov. 15 approved a two-year lease agreement with Flock Group, Inc., headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, which has developed a new technology for operation.
The city purchased its first ALPR system in 2017 from Vigilant Solutions, with 35 readers installed at 11 intersections. Since that time, 87 cameras have been installed at 18 intersections.
In 2021, the cameras assisted in the recovery of 115 stolen vehicles and the arrest of 123 people for various crimes, Chino Police Lieutenant Dustin Tomicic said.
The Vigilant Solution system, however, requires established infrastructure for cameras to be installed, and since not all intersections have this capability, the locations were limited, Lt. Tomicic said.
With the evolution of technology, the Flock Group has developed a cellular-based system that operate on solar power, he said.
The new cameras will complement the existing ALPR system, he added.
Flock installed the 39 cameras on Oct. 1 at 20 intersections identified by the police department and in the first 19 days, 36 alerts resulted in the recovery of nine stolen vehicles, the seizure of narcotics, the recovery of stolen property, the discovery of identity theft, several warrant arrests, and other arrests, the lieutenant said.
“Our police department does an amazing job at catching the bad guys,” Mayor Eunice Ulloa said. “This is another tool that you deserve and that our community deserves.”
“We’re going to get a reputation and criminals won’t be coming around here anymore,” said Councilman Walt Pocock. Councilman Marc Lucio said he was a proponent of the technology.
“It’s not just for stolen cars but for people who commit serious crimes in the city,” he said. “We will be able to track these individuals down.”
The lease cost for the first year will be $84,750, which is a nine-month pro-rated amount including the 60-day pilot program, according to a staff report.
There is an annual flat rate of $2,500 per camera per year, and a one-time $250 installation fee per camera.
The subsequent annual cost of the lease would be $100,000, which would be added to the police department’s 2023-24 fiscal year budget.
