The Home Office has, since 1993, made a total capital investment of £37.15 million for the police use of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology.

Police forces are responsible for managing their own budgets and expenditure therefore it is not possible to state how much capital they have invested in ANPR during the same period.

Does this answer the above question?
