Garbage truck drivers have been spying on Americans since 2010!
Boston’s Transportation dept. has equipped sanitation (garbage) trucks with license plate readers for years:
“In collecting data, the BTD patrols city blocks—in some cases, both literally and figuratively sweeping the street with ALPR-equipped sanitation trucks—and not exclusively in search of plates belonging to scofflaws. Files obtained in our investigation reveal that as the BTD’s software searches databases, it alerts department operators if a plate is connected to a “convicted person on supervised release,” or to someone pegged to a “protection order.” Commonly called hotlists, these compendiums are created by fusing criminal intelligence from sources like the FBI’s National Crime Information Center and the AMBER Alert program, as well as from data furnished by banks, collection agencies, and the civil court system.”
San Jose California is also considering using garbage trucks equipped with license plate readers to spy on EVERYONE:
Mayor Sam Liccardo and Councilmen Johnny Khamis and Raul Peralez proposed that the city consider strapping license plate readers to the front of garbage trucks, allowing them to record the plates of every car along their routes. The data would be fed directly to the Police Department from the privately operated trash trucks, prompting an officer to respond to stolen vehicles or cars involved with serious crime.
“I got this idea from a police captain, and I thought it was a great idea,” Khamis said last week at a meeting of the council’s rules committee. “We’re merely looking for advice to see if it’s doable.”
Are you getting the big picture? Police are coming under fire for using license plate readers, so ‘officially’ police claim they’ve stopped using police cars to record our every movement.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
In 2013 the Boston police department ‘officially’ halted its license plate spy program, but it never ‘officially stopped because they’ve been using BTD vehicles to do the spying for them!
What no one is telling you, is police everywhere are using traffic cameras from Vigilant Solutions for example to record our every movement.
The DEA has created a national license plate reader spying program by installing cameras on every highway across the country. Police across the country have access to these DEA highway cameras.
Everyone should be shocked by the level of police spying:
Police in California and across the country have access to video cameras in shopping malls, banks, hospitals, schools, convenience stores and retailers:
“Fresno police chief Jerry Dyer said the department has entered into an agreement with the River Park shopping center for use of its cameras. Similar negotiations are underway with local shopping malls, banks, hospitals, schools, convenience stores and retailers. This would give the department access to thousands more surveillance devices.”
“The (police) department has access to 180 video policing cameras placed at various intersections and public buildings, as well as the 140 traffic cameras owned by the city. The department has also partnered with Fresno Unified School District, giving the center access to the district’s 750 cameras.”
I’m zooming in on the infield of Fenway Park,” he says while maneuvering a camera. He uses a laptop to swivel and zoom the HD video camera on a building hundreds of yards away from the ballpark. The zoom is so powerful, project manager Eric Johnson says it could probably tell whether a Red Sox pitcher has thrown a strike or a ball.
Don’t forget police vehicles are equipped with dashcams and now cops in most cities will be equipped with body cams that are constantly spying on EVERYONE.
Police across the country brag about their spying capabilities:
“Today is a great day for law enforcement and a bad day for criminals in the city of St. Louis.” That says it all right there, law enforcement considers it a great day, when private corporations work with law enforcement to spy on you. Police Chief Sam Dotson adds, “Cameras in public space are a part of everyday life. The case study is there, the examples are there, we’re just getting caught up.”
Access to private cameras also means not having to wait for a business to open to examine its recorded images, Lt. Brent Feig said. “We’re really leveraging the public space…” he said.
We’re really leveraging the public space! What he’s really saying is they’re using every public/private surveillance camera to spy on us!
Motorola’s ‘Real Time Crime Center’ is spying on you through numerous platforms:
“The Real-Time Intelligence Client lets analysts prepare and distribute live tactical video, recorded video clips, documents, photos and key information to your officers in the field, and to other agencies for multi-jurisdictional response. Push-a-Link and Push-a Snapshot make it easy to distribute video and photos to dispatched units. Real-time analytics monitor video streams and detect user-defined events of interest – to improve response times by alerting RIC operators to crowd formations, dropped bags and other suspicious behavior as it occurs.”
Raytheon & the NSA will now be recording everyone’s license plate:
Technology and defense giant Raytheon was recently awarded a $130 million contract to install all-electronic tolling systems on the Massachusetts Turnpike and at several local tunnels. A unit of the company’s Integrated Defense Systems business will install the system over the next year and a half.
By replacing manual and electronic toll-collection booths with a system that will automatically charge vehicles, cars will be able to maintain highway speeds as they pass through the station, easing traffic congestion and cutting down driving time for commuters.
FYI, Raytheon is one of the National Security Agency’s biggest contractors.
So don’t believe the mass-media’s B.S. stories about how police have stopped spying on us, if anything it’s increasing!
Below is a prefect example of license plate tracking on steroids:
