Continuing our series of True Story animations, Vigilant brings to life a story told to us by Assistant Chief M.D. Lowry of Loganville Police Department in Georgia. A man wanted for indecent acts with a child – and a woman driving a vehicle taken in an armed robbery and carjacking – were apprehended by a single officer within a two hour period. Assistant Chief Lowry stated, “I have no doubt that these vehicles would have passed through our jurisdiction without detection had we not had the license plate reader (LPR) unit in place. We have only had our single unit for only a few months, but it is already proving its value by helping us to remove these threats from our community.” The original and complete press release from February 2014 may be seen at
