CUCollector Reporting- City of Dallas Follows the Repossession Industries Lead

Dallas, TX – September 11, 2011 – Dallas’ new plan to use a roaming fleet of sophisticated cameras to track down municipal court violators is high-tech but hardly cutting-edge.

Similar cameras belonging to repossession companies have been scanning streets here for years, and one of the nation’s major license-plate recognition technology companies sits one county over in Fort Worth.

Every day, dozens of these cameras, mounted on cars and tow trucks throughout North Texas, photograph countless plates and compare them to lists of stolen vehicles or ones behind on payments. In rare cases, those private cameras have searched for and found subjects of Amber Alerts.

“We’ve been using this technology longer than most police departments,” said George Badeen, president of the trade group Allied Finance Adjusters.
