Statement on the High Court judgement on the use of live facial recognition technology by South Wales Police

September 04 10:21 2019 Print This Article

An ICO spokesperson said: “We will be reviewing the judgment carefully. We welcome the court’s finding that the police use of Live Facial Recognition (LFR) systems involves the processing of sensitive personal data of members of the public, requiring compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018. This new and intrusive technology has the potential, if used without the right privacy safeguards, to undermine rather than enhance confidence in the police.”
