Interactive map: Is SPD scanning license plates on your street?

The Seattle Police Department has 12 vehicles equipped with automated license-plate scanners to look for stolen cars and chronic parking offenders. This map shows the 1.6 million scans recorded from May 11 through Aug. 5 — nearly 19,000 a day. The individual locations have been grouped to the nearest block. The patrols focus on the main arterials and higher-density areas such as Capitol Hill, downtown, the University District and Ballard. However, most residential areas also see these vehicles, as three of four streets had at least one visit over that time period.

Hover over a location to see how many days during this period the SPD cameras scanned a particular street, and how many plates they recorded. To pan the map, click and hold until the cursor changes. Read the full story.
