Facial recognition and law enforcement: technology and policy
Recent and notable advances in facial recognition technology have led to expanding calls for its use in law enforcement, in the commercial world, and in protecting national security. Policy and technology issues have emerged, especially in connection with law enforcement adoption of facial recognition. The speakers will debate the issues and offer their insights on potential solutions.
Roger Rodriguez joined Vigilant Solutions after serving over twenty years with the NYPD where he spearheaded the NYPD’s first dedicated facial recognition unit and helped start up the Real Time Crime Center. Both are recognized as world models in law enforcement data analytics and facial recognition used in criminal investigations. Today, Roger drives the Facial Recognition and License Plate Recognition product lines for Vigilant Solutions as Director of Business Development. As subject matter expert and author, he shares his experiences through thought leadership presentations, media interviews, publications, and hundreds of law enforcement agencies around the world have benefitted from them.
