ELSAG, a Finmeccanica Company will honor Trooper Pam Neff and Virginia State Police with the Golden Camera Award
Chicago, IL- October 24, 2015- At the 122nd meeting of the International Chiefs of Police in Chicago, Selex ES, Inc. will recognize Trooper Pam Neff and the Virginia State Police at 2 pm on Monday, October 26 with their Golden Camera Award. The award is being presented to Trooper Neff and the VSP in acknowledgement of their good police work using Selex ES' license plate recognition technology.
On August 26, 2015 a gunman shot dead Alison Parker and Adam Ward and critically injured Vicki Gardner in Franklin County, Virginia. Thanks to the quick work of Virginia State Police and local authorities the license plate number of the shooter was broadcast statewide to patrol vehicles, several of which were equipped with the MPH-900 license plate recognition system. Five hours later and roughly 234 miles away from the shooting scene, Virginia Trooper Pam Neff entered the number into her MPH-900 and discovered the LPR had just read his license plate three minutes prior. Trooper Neff circled back to catch up with the shooter and once she had back-up at her side proceeded with the apprehension.
The presentation will take place at Selex ES' stand #3945 in the McCormick Place Convention Center.
