ACLU requests police license scanner information
OKLAHOMA CITY — With thousands of cars on Oklahoma roadways every day, and more agencies purchasing license plate scanners, it’s possible your car will soon be caught in the footage of one.
That’s why the ACLU wants to ask a few questions of local lawmen.
“We’ve seen a growing number of jurisdicitons around the country beginning to use automatic liscense plate reading systems,” said Ryan Keisel of Oklahoma’s ACLU chapter.
Monday, the ALCU chapters in Oklahoma and 37 other states filed Freedom of Information requests for all major law enforcement entitites in those states.
One of those served with a request is the Oklahoma County sheriff’s office. That department currently has one license plate scanner.
“As with any request that we get, we are a transparent agency, we will review it and release that information accordingly,” said department spokesman Mark Meyers.
