Police force to deploy mobile facial recognition technology
A police force will provide about 500 of its personnel with mobile facial recognition systems for use in the field, a news report has been able to suggest.
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department has decided to disseminate the facial recognition tech following a pilot project, during which 35 successful identifications of criminals were made over a 1-year period. The move also reflects broader trends, with police in nearby San Diego also ramping up their use of biometric identification technologies over recent months.
While the technology offers obvious advantages to police officers, in a statement, SCSD Sergeant Kyle Hoertsch was keen to emphasize the restraints imposed on the technology’s use, asserting, “we are not comparing against non-criminal databases such as driver’s license photographs,” and pointing out that the system only presents officers with possible matches for review.
Tensor – the go-to company for the latest facial recognition technology deployments
Tensor has an extensive experience in deploying solutions that employ facial recognition technology for a variety of customers. Our expertise and technical know-how enables us to easily integrate video surveillance into other security systems including ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), Access Control and Facial Recognition to name a few, in order to enhance and improve the security and efficiency at your site.
Tensor face biometrics are used to identify users from access control lists and verify their identity. Our access control solution facilitates user management at runtime and allows users to be enrolled on-the-fly by video capture.
This technology yields excellent performance despite partial occlusions of the face, the use of glasses, scarves or caps, changes of facial expression, and moderate rotations of the face. Moreover, it does not allow users to be impersonated using photographs. Tensor biometric technology is the perfect solution to control the access of personnel to restricted security areas.
Tensor plc’s services cover consultancy, concept, design, procurement, manufacturing, installation, maintenance, training and monitoring.
