Va. Police to Test Face Software

Thanks Borg77 from our BPN Forum

VIRGINIA BEACH, If you're a criminal, a runaway or a terrorist, a day at the beach here may soon be anything but that. The city will become the second in the nation — Tampa, Fla., is the other — to employ facial-recognition software to assist police in identifying and catching criminals and missing persons.

The system is to be tested along the city's oceanfront resort strip this holiday weekend, and police hope to have it fully operational in two to three weeks. "We're adding to our ability to prevent crime and keep Virginia Beach safe," Deputy Police Chief Gregory Mullen said Wednesday.

Critics say the software is inaccurate and an invasion of privacy.
