The interview room video systems panel has 15 members and the license plate reader systems panel has 21 members and two alternates. At least 15 of the panelists on both panels are law enforcement officers; at least three are prosecutors; and 14 of the panelist are involved with video evidence collection, forensics, surveillance or a provider of that equipment.
