Ohio AG Calls For Review Of Law Enforcement Information-Sharing

Sep 11, 2013

Ohio's attorney general wants an advisory panel to review security and protocols for the state's entire law enforcement information-sharing system, not just its use of facial recognition technology.

Since June, local and state law enforcement officers have been able to use facial recognition software to match images of possible suspects or victims with Ohio driver's license photos. Critics call the technology's use intrusive. Attorney General Mike DeWine appointed the panel to study whether more protocols were needed for using the software. He told panel members during their first meeting that it makes sense to review not just facial recognition but the full web-based system, the decade-old Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway.
