Pay-By-Plate, bridge and tunnel surveillance cameras, spy on everyone


For years now, DHS and law enforcement have been reassuring the public that they are not using Pay-By-Plate (PBP) gantries to spy on everyone.

Should you believe them?

As you will see, the answer is a resounding no.

Last year, I revealed that DHS is using PBP gantries to create a national a national ‘Hotlist’.  

What are “Hotlists”?

The Cincinnati Police Departments’, “Success in Automated License Plate Recognition Technology” report reveals what “Hotlists” actually mean.

As you can see, ‘Hotlists’ can mean any number of things and rest assured the number of things that a person can be ‘Holtlisted’ for will continue to grow. (Click here to find out how DHS and AECOM Technology use PBP to spy on everyone.)

Unfortunately police ‘Hotlists’ are a small part of a much larger surveillance program.

In 2014 the Washington Post warned Americans that DHS was setting up a national license plate tracking system.

If you thought that was bad, just wait, things get worse.

A 2014 article in Bloomberg News, revealed that the IRS and US Forest Service awarded license plate reader company Vigilant Solutions a $415,000 contract.

“The IRS, the US Forest Service and the Air Force’s Air Combat Command have since 2009 conducted off the radar deals with Vigilant that allowed the company to receive roughly $415,000 from Uncle Sam.”

Why would the IRS and the Forest Service need PBP’s?

Police use PBP to spy on parking lots and universities

Is DHS using PBP to spy on people in parking lots and public streets?

Cities and universities across the country are using Cale Group’s PBP cameras to spy on everyone.

It is the same tired old story, law enforcement claims PBP is about public safety but when one digs a little deeper the truth is apparent.

PBP is all about money and surveillance.

“Cale enables you to manage staff more efficiently and helps ensure parking transactions are maximized. Cale Enforcement can be integrated with all other Cale parking solutions to further generate, enforcement-based revenues.”

“Cale Enforcement connects to other systems and suppliers of payment information, as well as other relevant data sources, for example smart phone payments, permit handling, vehicle information,government, and collection agencies.”  (Click here & here to read more.)

A recent Binghamton University article warns that PBP will eliminate the need for parking decals because their police will scan every vehicle.

Unfortunately, law enforcement has more surveillance devices at their disposal

Police use bridge and tunnel facial recognition cameras to spy on everyone

For years now, DHS has been installing ‘Remote Video Surveillance Systems’ (RVSS) on bridges and tunnels. Earlier this year, an article in AOL, revealed that New York City is installing RVSS facial recognition cameras at all their bridges and tunnels.

“The plan calls for the installation of cameras equipped with advanced facial recognition technology in an effort to track everyone entering and exiting the city via the extensive network of tunnels and bridges.”

As the never-ending war on terror becomes a war on everyone’s privacy, we can expect to see facial recognition RVSS cameras being installed across the country.

DHS and law enforcement have one more tool to spy on everyone.

Police use DHS’s ‘SkyWatch’ towers to spy on everyone

Police across the country are also using ‘SkyWatch’ towers to spy on innocent Americans.

‘SkyWatch’ is actually made my FLIR and provided to police departments by DHS grants. FLIR just unveiled their second generation mobile surveillance Sky Watch tower at this years International Association of Chiefs of Police convention.

As you can see, DHS and law enforcement are using PBP and numerous other surveillance systems to spy on everyone.

Welcome to police state America, where one surveillance system is never enough.

  1. Cale America Hotlists:

    “AutoISSUE administrators also have the ability to update and maintain composite lists of stolen vehicles and other hotlists using the ‘List Editor’ feature. Lists can be copied from other source files without the need to manually edit each list. Once the lists have been edited, the new information must be uploaded to the handhelds for the new lists to become effective. Loading an amending list will not affect any tickets that have already been written regardless if they have been downloaded from the handheld devices or not.”

    Cale’s Hotlist Slideshare (Page 16):

    AutoVu’s PBP Hotlist:

    “The AutoVu ALPR system lets you manage all of your hotlists from one system and decide whether to share plate reads or hits beyond your organizational boundaries. Advanced features, including Federation™ and covert hotlists, empower your organization to enlist the aid of other AutoVu systems without compromising the safety or privacy of their staff and clients.”

    AutoChalk Hotlist:

    “Whether your hot lists are stolen vehicles, scofflaws, or you need to check for residential parking permits, autoChalk® can import appropriate plates lists and check those vehicles. autoChalk has plenty of RAM and processor speed to process as many hot and white lists as you need. Tannery Creek’s license plate cameras employ an LPR engine that works equally well on reflective and non-reflective plates to accurately discern scofflaws, permit holders or overstaying parkers.”

  2. Texas Department of Public Safety PBP Hotlist:

    “Hot lists are typically uploaded onto a LPR system daily and can be updated by the authoring agency or an officer in the field. Hot list information comes from a variety of sources – some generated by DPS and some by local agencies. DPS currently provides hot lists to LPR users consisting of extracts from Texas Crime Information Center (TCIC – refreshed every hour) and National Crime Information Center (NCIC – refreshed every 12 hours) files. Building on that set of data, DPS could expand the hot list provided to Texas law enforcement agencies to include items such as AMBER Alerts and Department of Homeland Security watch lists. The role of DPS in creating a standardized hot list file format is important because it will allow local agencies to leverage that statewide standard to drive down costs when dealings with LPR vendors. Additionally, the centrally generated hot list allows local agencies to largely defer to DPS the maintenance of the supporting documentation regarding why a particular license plate number is on the hot list. “

  3. TSA facial biometric body scanners and government watchlists being used in train stations:

    Evolve uses ‘Known Wolves’, watchlist software that can identify people of interest or anyone on a government watchlist.

    “Stay on constant lookout for known wolves and other watchlist individuals using proven facial recognition and human IQ. Integrated video camera provides positive ID for alarm resolution. Send notifications and alerts to mobile team or operations center.”

    Getting the public to accept facial recognition body scanners at airports and Disney World is only part of a much greater privacy nightmare.

    Evolv’s facial recognition body scanners are being used at public area screenings, sporting events, and employee screenings.

    Retail stores and conference centers are also using facial biometric cameras and scanners.

    Imagine a future where the police use government watchlists, facial biometric scanners, Stingray cellphone surveillance, Bluetooth, and license plate readers to spy on our every movement.

    NHL Creates Its Own Private Watchlists:

    Law enforcement, FaceFirst and sports teams are working together to create their own watch lists!

    “FaceFirst’s CEO, Peter Trepp, said his company is creating its own “watch list,” using data obtained from a number of local U.S. and European police forces and agencies such as Interpol.”

    “At the very least, Trepp said, NHL teams could follow FC Groningen’s lead and create their own database of troublemakers and banned spectators. Teams could also use facial biometrics to identify VIPs and season-ticket holders and fast-track their entry, he said.”

    This is horrific, private watch lists can and will be abused by law enforcement. Make no mistake, private watch lists are the epitome of a police state.

  4. “PBP is all about money and surveillance.”

    The two things at the top of the NWO’s wish list… mammon & control.
