Mr. Neiss,

Per the Legal Division-

Your request for records indicating the scope of APLR deployment, the purposes for which APLR technology is employed, the means of handling and storing APLR data, the extent and timeline for APLR data storage, and the protocols and extent for data sharing between the SLMPD and other government agencies are all closed records under RSMo 610.100(3) because their production “would disclose techniques, procedures or guidelines for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions.”

The Real Time Crime Center does forward a weekly report to the Downtown St. Louis Partnership regarding hits from the fixed LPR cameras. I have attached an example. Please let us know if you would like copies of additional reports. If you would like the copies of additional reports, please provide a date range for the reports you are seeking.

Thank you,
