Information from Union City Police Regarding License Plate Readers and the ACLU
Recently, the Union City Police Department was erroneously identified by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) as a law enforcement agency that shared information gleaned from its Automated License Plate Readers (ALPRs) with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Click here to read the story.
The Union City Police Department objects to the assertion that they share information from Automated License Plate Readers with federal immigration authorities based on the following:
- The police department does not own any Automated License Plate Readers,
- Sharing information like this with ICE is a violation of California Senate Bill 54, and
- The City’s 2017 Compassionate City Resolution precludes the police department from engaging in actions solely for the purpose of enforcing immigration law.
