Over the years the technology of LPRs has evolved.
However, thugs know this and utilize ways to obscure or mask their plates. If I was going to enter SCA to commit crime I’d know or spot the LPRs and make adjustments so as not to have the reader ID my plate. You can buy fake plates, covers, temporarily obscure, etc. and then replace quickly.
I would not want an elevated sense of security to be generated by installation of static LPRs. Like surveillance cameras, they are more of a post incident investigative tool than a preventive tool.
