The Brazos County Commissioners approved the purchase of a License Plate Reader(LPR) Trailer for the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office. The LPR trailers are designed to capture license plates on streets and highways.

The purchase of the $53,412 trailer was funded using the Sheriff’s Crime Fund and a $40,000 grant from the Department of Homeland Security.

LPR trailers can be deployed along roadways to capture license plates to help identify suspects in crimes. Many of the property crimes in the county are committed by criminals that drive from other cities. Identifying vehicles that travel past the LPR trailer is expected to aid in prosecution and reduce this type of crime.
