AUTOMATIC LICENSE PLATE READER PRIVACY ACT
Nebraska Revised Statute §60-3206 (3)(a)(i-ii) requires agencies using automatic license plate readers to report certain data to the Commission on a yearly basis.
An agency reports on a 12-month basis, starting when its reader program was launched, so the annual reporting may not align with calendar or fiscal years. Also, if an agency ceases to use the readers, a report may not be filed as there may not be data to disclose. Agencies are not required to notify the Commission when they end a reader program.
The agencies listed below are known current or past users based on previous data submissions or mentions in the media.
