COLUMBIA, MD / ACCESSWIRE / December 11, 2019 / Rekor Systems, Inc. (REKR) ("Rekor"), a Nasdaq company focused on bringing smarter, faster, cost-competitive solutions to the worlds of public safety and customer experience, announced today the launch of its vehicle recognition software donation program to provide eligible municipalities, law enforcement agencies, and educational facilities with free access to its industry-leading Watchman vehicle recognition software. Rekor has already received applications from organizations across 31 states to provide vehicle recognition solutions.

Eligible organizations can apply to receive two software licenses for Rekor's Watchman software, which can be integrated into either new or existing traffic or security IP cameras for real-time alerting of known license plates. Watchman will enable the uploading of AMBER Alerts, hotlists, manual entry, and forensic searching for up to 30 days. The initiative was designed to provide organizations with valuable data to reduce crime and increase public safety.

"One of the biggest barriers to implementing new technologies at the municipal, law enforcement and school district level is budget. Oftentimes crucial programs are cast aside because of large, upfront capital costs that can't be met with current resources - something we're learning quickly by the early enthusiasm from applying organizations across the country," said Robert A. Berman, CEO, Rekor. "Our new vehicle recognition software donation program is already a success as law enforcement agencies that have signed up are placing orders to purchase additional licenses. This program is demonstrating that public safety officials can have affordable access to this powerful crime-stopping technology."

By participating in the donation program, organizations will contribute their data to the Rekor Public Safety Network (RPSN), as well as gain access to the nationwide, comprehensive law enforcement partnership. Available to any customer that opts-in, the RPSN aggregates vehicle data from customers in more than 30 states. With thousands of automatic license plate reading cameras currently in service that capture approximately 150 million plate reads per month, the network is expected to be live by the first quarter of 2020.
