Policing Uses of Live Facial Recognition in the United Kingdom

Fussey, P and Murray, D (2020)'Policing Uses of Live Facial Recognition in the United Kingdom' in Amba Kak, ed., “Regulating Biometrics: Global Approaches and Urgent Questions” AI Now Institute, September 1 2020, https://ainowinstitute.org/regulatingbiometrics.html.

Peter Fussey (University of Essex) and Daragh Murray (University of Essex), lead authors of the independent empirical review of the London Metropolitan Police’s trial of Live Facial Recognition (LFR), explain how existing legal norms and regulatory tools failed to prevent the proliferation of a system with demonstrated harms. Through this, they draw broader lessons for the regulation of LFR in the UK and similar technologies elsewhere.
