A British court has ruled that a police force’s trial of automated facial recognition technology is lawful, dealing a blow to activists concerned about its implications for privacy. The court said Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2019 that existing laws adequately cover the trial by the South Wales police force, in what’s believed to be the world’s first legal case on how a law enforcement agency uses the new technology.

DAPHNE, Ala. (WKRG) — Daphne Police are urging residents to help fight crime on the Eastern Shore. They’re hoping those residents with security cameras will register those cameras with the police department. Police say this will help them fight crime faster than before.

“Collecting this footage typically requires an officer or detective to canvass a neighborhood by going door to door looking for cameras and citizens willing to help their neighbors. This is a time consuming process,” reads a post on the Daphne Police Department’s Facebook page.

Starting this month, Daphne Police are hoping residents begin helping with this request.

Police say if there’s a crime in your area a detective will call you and ask for you to review the video within a short timeframe.
