The Department of Homeland Security is set to activate a national license plate tracking system that will be shared with law enforcement, allowing DHS officers to take photos of any license plate using their smartphone and upload it to a database which will include a “hot list” of “target vehicles”.

The details are included in a PDF attachment uploaded yesterday to the Federal Business Opportunities website under a solicitation entitled “National License Plate Recognition Database.”

The system will “track vehicle license plate numbers that pass through cameras or are voluntarily entered into the system from a variety of sources (access control systems, asset recovery specialists, etc.) and uploaded to share with law enforcement” in order to help locate “criminal aliens and absconders.”

  1. Hey DHS—-WATCH THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do your damn jobs and leave the true Americans the hell alone. No matter how “Badass” you THINK you are, you may need the help of a Patriot one day. And if this keeps up- we may just sit back and watch you lose your ass.
