A followup on Vigilant: they sell their system to malls!


"According to a disclosure on the company’s website
<https://www.shopirvinecompany.com/legal/alpr-policy/>, Irvine Company
[which operates a string of open-air malls in southeastern Los Angeles,
location list here <https://www.shopirvinecompany.com/centers/>] has been
an active client of Vigilant Solutions since at least 2016 by feeding back
data to the Vigilant network and appropriate law enforcement agencies."
