A RAND researcher, Keith Gierlack, who is also the chief researcher in this study, states in a news release that license plate reading devices are a rather recent technology that can prove useful in investigating and solving nearly any crime type. However, Gierlack also holds the view that there are some key privacy- related issues which have to be dealt with for this tool to reach up to its maximum potential. The reader systems employ visible-light as well as infrared cameras to scan nearby localities for passing vehicles' license plates. Character recognition programs are installed into these systems for reading and identifying number plates. Subsequently, the systems can compare the information they have obtained on license plates with a license plate "hotlist." The hotlist consists of license plate numbers that have been linked to criminals and criminal activities.

If the leaders of our national financial institutions had asked 'are these moral actions right, ethically speaking, from the point-of-view of my profession' rather than 'will these moral actions make money,' the world financial crisis would never have occurred.
