It uses automated number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras which provide live intelligence to officers on patrol.

Operation Moonshot City, the team which disrupts criminals and protect communities around Norwich's road networks, was launched in November last year and cracks down on criminals and organised crime groups who target our local communities, businesses and visitors in the Norwich area.
