ANPR is used to help detect, deter and disrupt criminality at a local, force, regional and national level, including tackling traveling criminals, organised crime groups and terrorism. ANPR provides lines of enquiry and evidence in the investigation of crime and is used by the police and LEAs throughout the United Kingdom. The following documents are issued in respect of the use of ANPR by the police and other law enforcement agencies.

National ANPR standards for policing and law enforcement (NASPLE) is issued by the Home Office to set out the standards for the use of ANPR for law enforcement purposes by the police and other law enforcement agencies within the NAS.

  • Part 1: data standards which define the compliance requirements for ANPR data
  • Part 2: infrastructure standards which define the compliance requirements for ANPR infrastructure
