The Trojan LRS can read and recognize California plates as well as out of state plates. It is able to recognize any type of license plates with outstanding citation fees.
The LRS camera is not a video recorder. It is an image recognition system. It is designed to identify license plates and read the information and check the plate against a database in order to determine the status of the plate or permit in question.
The only information the LRS system will be used to access is a vehicle’s citation history on USC property. It will also be used to identify permit status (valid, expired, not registered to vehicle) for all types of USC permits. The system will not be used to access any personal, classified or security sensitive information.
Only those vehicles with 3 or more delinquent citations will be identified by the LRS. Those vehicles/persons with no citations on USC property, or with paid citations, will not be identified by the LRS system.
The purpose of the Trojan License Recognition System is to identify those vehicles which have outstanding citation fees; with 3 or more outstanding citations on USC property. It also helps to ensure that those Trojans who pay for parking have a space to park when they come to campus.
