FBI: More Local Police to Use Facial Recognition Program
Local police across the country soon will be using the FBI’s facial recognition software to help identify suspects, reports Government Computer News.
The FBI is extending its facial recognition pilot to other states after Michigan began testing the program in February.
Hawaii and Maryland are planning to sign on to the program. Others expected to include South Carolina, Ohio, New Mexico, Kansas, Arizona, Tennessee, Nebraska and Missouri, according to GCN.
The software would enable local police to search a repository of about 13 million criminal mug shots.
