Number plate recognition cameras have been installed across north Manchester in a bid to cut crime.
The 12 cameras will help police check vehicles they suspect of being stolen or involved in crime - from local cases to major terrorist plots.
The system has the capability to scan 600,000 number plates every 24 hours, checking them against a variety of databases.
Assistant Chief Constable Dave Thompson, from Greater Manchester Police, said: "It is unique in its ability to impact on crime at every level, from local volume crime through to cross border and organised crime and counter terrorism.
"These new fixed camera sites will bring enormous benefits to the police and aid us in protecting our communities."
