Deployment of ANPR Cameras in the CFW footprint

Armed response officerAutomated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras have revolutionised the monitoring and flagging of motor vehicles on South African roads, and we want to introduce these to the CFW (Crestholme, Forest Hills, Waterfall) area for increased security in the footprint.

In partnership with Snipr and Blue Security, the deployment of ANPR cameras enables communities to now know when vehicles listed as stolen or used in committing a crime enters the area.

We have identified seven locations that are vehicle access points into Crestholme, Forest Hills and Waterfall, known as the CFW project.

In order to fund and deploy these ANPR cameras in these seven locations, we have proposed a set of milestones in order to achieve these goals. For every 30 new Blue clients, Blue will install one ANPR station. Seven stations are required to cover all vehicle access points into the CFW.
