Violent Gang Member Suspected of Killing 14-year-old Apprehended using Vigilant Solutions License Plate Reader Data

July 21, 2014

VigilantCroppedVigilant Solutions announces today that the use of its License Plate Reader data and LEARN® online investigative solution has resulted in the successful resolution of a gang investigation. The details of the case are being obscured at the request of the agency.

The agency belongs to one of the largest multi-jurisdictional license plate reader (LPR) initiatives in North America. The initiative comprises multiple agencies serving a population of over 3 million. One of the investigators on the case states, “Our agencies selected Vigilant for many reasons – the performance and accuracy we observed during our evaluation, the flexible architecture, the ability to integrate our existing LPR hardware from another vendor, cloud-based data sharing, good analytic tools, and other reasons. One really unique element of the Vigilant system that has proven valuable is the private network of license plate reader data, which recently helped us put some dangerous gang members behind bars.”

“A member of one gang stabbed a member of a rival gang sparking a series of incidents,” reports the investigator. “In retaliation for the stabbing, the rival gang conducted a ‘drive-by shooting’ at a known location of the other gang, hitting and killing a 14-year-old boy.” The investigator immediately turned to Vigilant for leads on the suspect’s whereabouts.
