SP will install cameras in vehicles to identify stolen cars – Metro World News Brasil


The government of São Paulo will install cameras in 3,000 Military Police vehicles. The equipment will be connected to the Detecta system, which reads vehicle license plates quickly. Thus, it will be possible to identify stolen cars or recently used in crimes.

The system is expected to cost R$ 5.4 million per month, including the installation of cameras and operating technology. Currently, the Detecta system has 8,400 license plate readers at 4,400 points in the state of São Paulo.

The equipment installed in the vehicles will identify vehicles with a record of theft, theft or other point of attention and alert the police. This is possible due to the integration of the cameras with the databases of public security and the State Department of Transit (Detran).

The tender for the new equipment should be published in 2 weeks and the cameras should start operating next year.
