Police want to increase the number of cameras in Cornwall which monitor car number plates.

Bosses say the ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) system is essential for catching and deterring criminals.

It is also used by the council to monitor traffic and improve tailbacks.

The project see 24 new cameras put up in the Duchy by early 2015.

We are being asked what we think at a series of roadshows and in an online questionnaire.

Five locations will be visited during the week:

Monday 24 November, 10am-4pm, Lemon Quay, Truro

Tuesday 25 November, 10am-2pm, Asda, St Austell

Wednesday 26 November, 10am-2pm, Sainsbury's Newquay

Thursday 27 November, 10am-2pm, Morrisons, Bodmin

Friday 28 November, 10am-2pm, Tesco, Callington

Superintendent Craig Downham, Head of Operational Policing said: "We are extremely pleased to have collaborated with Cornwall Council to improve the ANPR cameras in the county and the consultation roadshows will hopefully help gain the public's support for the project."

"ANPR cameras are an essential policing tool and increasing the number we have in Cornwall will make it even more difficult for criminals to move round the county without being detected.  The more we know about them and their movements the more we can prevent crimes being committed."

Glyn Williams, Transport and Technology Manager for Cornwall Council added: "ANPR technology provides us with vital traffic origin/destination information and journey times.  This information helps inform strategic decisions when planning highway improvements and new developments to keep traffic flowing through Cornwall."

Members of the public can also complete the questionnaire online
