Request for Information (RFI) — Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)
The Danish National Police is currently in the preparation phase for a tender regarding delivery and maintenance of a system for automatic number plate recognition (ANPR). As a part of the preparation for tender, the Danish National Police would like to gather information from the market in a market dialogue.
The purpose of the market dialogue is to gain information on the market and what the market can offer and if the Danish National Police can keep (some of) the existing ANPR system and if not, what else the market can offer.
In 2013, Rigspolitiet (i.e. the Danish National Police) completed a proof of concept on automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) in order to explore potential benefits. In light of the results, the Danish National Police decided to implement this technology in the entire police force to support the action against e.g. international and organized crime, burglary and home robberies and support to the Danish Tax Administration of mobile, flexible and intelligence-based custom actions.
The Danish National Police anticipate that the tender will include the following:
• Fixed ANPR cameras;
• Mobile ANPR cameras with associated ANPR software for police cars and possibly other types of vehicles such as motorcycles;
• Other types of portable ANPR solutions, either with associated ANPR software or with a connection directly to the back-end ANPR system;
• ANPR back-end system;
• Support and maintenance.
Please note that the mobile ANPR must be incorporated in a mobile PC-concept, which consist of a Window-based mobile PC, a mounted monitor on the police car's front panel as well as an application controlling the programs installed on the mobile PC.
The Danish National Police will provide the communication infrastructure for the ANPR systems. The Danish National Police prefers future-proof and flexible solutions as well as well-proven standard systems.
For further information, instructions regarding access to documents and practicalities in relation to this request for information, please see Section VI.3) Additional Information.

Due to a time perspective, the Danish National Police reserves the right only to invite a limited number of participants to the dialogue meetings.
