Facial Recognition Increasingly Used By Police In US

Technology went one step further in assisting the police in the US, with the introduction of Facial Recognition in their investigative armory which is not only proving to be very beneficial recently but is also helping to solve a number of dormant cases that have been collecting the dust for a long time. For example, simple thievery in Colorado was caught in 2018 when the software was used for the first time in the police department there, ushering in the newest entrant in the use of technology which will have the ability to remodel policing and make it better.

Facial Recognition has become increasingly popular with new police departments around small communities and huge cities purchasing the software. The market, with the introduction of the government in it, is going to inflate from $136.9 million to almost $375 million by 2025. There is a large database of reference images from licenses, jail records and using the software a quick comparison can be made with the submitted pictures or photos and videos picked up or screened to determine the person using artificial intelligence.

This method is being heralded as being better than DNA recognition even as the latter needs a lot of investment and almost a day to perform the necessary steps and identify a person. On the other hand, Facial Recognition is much simpler and convenient to use by the police department. They can use it to solve the small cases other than the big complicated ones.

There has been resistance for its usage as well as many researchers have found out that the results are not very accurate and tend to incorrectly identify dark skin people more than the white skin ones and it lets the government keep an eye on the people without proper jurisdiction. Thus it is clear that more jurisdictions and laws should be brought into place before implementing them fully.
