    COMMUNITY DEBATE
    USE OF FACIAL RECOGNITION BY THE POLICE

    Facial recognition technology continues to develop, in that it can be used to control various things, like the lock on your smartphone, but the technology has also been deployed in other ways. There are police forces around the world who are interested in the technology, some have already deployed it, like in China, and there are others, like the UK, who are trialing the technology.

    The argument put forward is that it helps to catch criminals, and track people of interest to the police. Against this argument are issues of privacy, and someones face being on a database when they haven't commited a crime.

    So where do you stand on the use of facial recognition by the police? Do you support it, or are you against it, and why?

    I personally believe that if you've got nothing to hide then you've got nothing to worry about. If someone wants to keep my face on their database then I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

    Speaking from my professional experience as a an officer for a government department that uses facial recognition technology already, I think it's a marvellous piece of kit.
