The Virginia State Police (VSP) used automatic license plate readers (ALPRs) to collect information for a massive database detailing the political activities of ordinary, innocent people.
If this is surprising to you, it shouldn’t be, given that license plate readers are used on a massive scale in the United States. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for police to maintain and access large databases without public consent.
While the fact that the VSP used license plate scanners in 2008 and 2009 was revealed in August by a Virginia newspaper, new information has been released thanks to documents obtained by the ACLU.
