Multi Request License Plate Reader Vendors

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

1) The name of any vendors or manufacturers that your department purchases license plate reader technology from. This may include but is not limited to cameras, software, or other technology to support automated reading of license plates in the areas your department serves.

2) The name of any vendors that your department partners with to install or perform maintenance on license plate reading technology (e.g., cameras and other software). These partners may also be known as integrators.

3) Where available, the contracts or purchase agreements with the vendors or parties included in the above two bullets.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.
