Vigilant Solutions' parking solution leverages its license plate recognition technology and extensive vehicle location data to assist parking agencies and municipal parking units in enforcing policies, collecting outstanding fines and locating repeat violators.
Vigilant’s license plate recognition cameras and software have been trusted by law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. and across the globe for more than a decade to identify and locate suspect vehicles and solve crimes faster. The company is now using this technology to develop a license plate-enabled parking (LEP) enforcement solution that, coupled with its expansive commercial data network, empowers parking enforcement to work more efficiently with local law enforcement to quickly address violations involving on-street spaces and off-street lots.
Vigilant’s LEP product offers:
- Access to open-API architecture that easily integrates with leading pay station and gated parking vendors. The solution identifies which vehicles have been paid for and alerts officers when offending vehicles are identified.
- Permit-only parking management with mobile LPR cameras, in-vehicle CarDetector Mobile software, and Vigilant’s web-based Client Portal. When an LPR-equipped vehicle detects a license plate that is not permitted, an alert is sent to the enforcement officer.
- Hotlist and whitelist uploads that are easy to manage from in-vehicle software allowing enforcement officers to set and manage zones from the field.
Vigilant’s expansive commercial data network, along with the use of the company’s LPR solution, enables agencies to locate repeat violators through a hotlist of offending vehicles. This data is accessible only by authorized personnel, who can quickly search billions of records to identify the best place to locate a vehicle that is eligible for booting or towing in an effort to collect fines.
