Automated license plate readers, which are high-speed, computer-controlled camera systems mounted on street poles, streetlights, highway overpasses, mobile trailers, or connected to police squad cars, will be my choice. They capture all license plate numbers that come into view, as well as the location, date, and time, automatically the data is then transmitted to a central server, which contains images of the vehicle as well as its driver and passengers. Police may use the information gathered to determine where a plate has been in the past, determine if a vehicle was at the scene of a crime, recognize travel patterns, and even discover vehicles that could be connected. They at times also capture photos of the passengers inside the car ,when this data is sent to central server a suspect can be identified.


I could use DNA databases to perform a familial search to identify the suspects. DNA from a crime scene will disclose the identity of a suspect. This is because familial searching is a crucial technique for maintaining family links between the genetic profile at the core of the investigation, which was identified at the crime scene, and any family members that might be in the database. This identification of possible relatives could lead to the identification of the unknown individual and the resolution of the crime.
