ACLU calls on Vt police for more info on license plate readers

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

The American Civil Liberties Union wants to know more about the use of license plate readers by Vermont police agencies.

More than 30 state and local police cruisers are now equipped with special cameras that photograph the plates of passing cars. Police say the photos go into a computer database and are used to identify stolen cars or cars being driven by criminal suspects.

The ACLU wants to know if police are collecting and storing information about drivers not wanted for a crime. The ACLU says tracking and recording people's movements raises serious privacy concerns.
