3M Back Office System Software

The 3M Back Office System Software provides administrative and data analysis functions for both mobile and fixed deployments of ALPR. It serves as a central repository where all data may reside and be used for investigative purposes.

3M's public safety software was specifically designed to allow law enforcement to capitalize on the tremendous amount of data generated by 3M fixed and mobile ALPR deployments. 3M Back Office System Software includes administration utilities, allowing for customization of screens, setup of users, and specification of databases for comparison purposes.

Perhaps the most powerful application is its data mining capability, allowing users to locate and map hits based on a wide range of criteria including partial plates, street address, GPS coordinates, and time and date.

3M License Plate Capture Software

In a mobile ALPR deployment, the 3M™ License Plate Capture Software provides the graphical user interface (GUI) and in-car software for feeding processed license plate images to the officer driving the vehicle. In real time, the software compares these images to plates found on federal or local hotlists

Designed specifically for law enforcement, this software automates the hotlist searches and facilitates in-car data queries against a variety of search parameters, providing significant productivity and safety improvements as compared to traditional, manual license plate searches.
