Here are all the police license plate scanners in Denmark

The police will not say where in the country they monitor the drivers. But internet activist Christian Panton, who has mapped more than 250 surveillance cameras in Denmark, will.

The police will not say where in the country, those with so-called ANPG cameras, license plate scanners, monitor Danish drivers.

But internet activist Christian Panton wants to with the website Here he has mapped all the cameras that are used in Denmark to recognize number plates.

The points marked in red on Christian Panton's map are the police number plate scanners.

Equipment that, according to Avisen Danmark, the police themselves do not want to say too much about. But they do exist and are used to a large extent.

Number plate recognition technology is also present in the four Danish environmental zones so far. But the Ministry of the Environment, which is behind the scheme, believes that this is no problem.

The ministry does not believe that there is surveillance in the zones. The images are deleted as soon as it is established that a car meets the applicable requirements in an environmental zone.

Back to the police ANPG equipment. It has been used by law enforcement since 2015. And in connection with the Finance Act 2020, it was decided to expand the number of stationary number plate scanners from 48 to 160.

Likewise, the number of mobile number plate scanners, those which e.g. the police cars buzz around with, expanded from 66 to 170.

In 2018, however, it was revealed that the National Police illegally stored so-called no-hits data, which is not relevant to the police's work, for more than the legal 24 hours. In fact, data on drivers was stored for up to 60 days, before it was deleted.

At the interest organization FDM, which itself is heavily criticized at the moment, the monitoring of cars in Denmark has been criticized several times.

But chief consultant Dennis Lange admits to TV 2 Kosmopol, the former TV 2 Lorry, that it is an effective means.
