Attached is the License Plate Recognition System policy for the Newark Police Department. Since this took less than one hour to fulfill, there is no charge associated with it. However, if this does not satisfy your request and more extensive documentation is requested, please let me know and an estimate of administrative costs will be forwarded to you.
