Bill Proposed For Deleting Data Collected By Police Plate Scanners

Posted: Updated:


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - There was controversy surrounding three electronic lisence plate readers being tested by police in Lansing, but now a state lawmaker is taking up a bill that would regulate how those readers are used.

State Representive Sam Singh announced the bill Wednesday. Under the bills rules, data from plate readers would be deleted from data systems after 48 hours, unless they were being used as evidence in a crime.

The bill would also ban plate readers from taking pictures of drivers.

Lansing Police officials said last month that they don't plan to keep the data for any longer than one year.
