The FBI is preparing its newest weapon against crime – a $1 billion national facial recognition system.

The Next Generation Identification program, which is expected to be rolled out nationwide by 2014, matches surveillance images of known criminals, reports CNET.

The system is designed to compare a photo to the FBI’s database of mugshots to identify suspects.

It’s unclear how accurate the program is, but some civil liberties groups worry the program could add innocent people to the database of mugshots, according to CNET.
