NYPD FACIAL RECOGNITION UNIT

Facebook

In case criminals or folks looking to stay off the law's radar needed any more proof that the authorities are indeed using social media to track offenders, DNA Info New York recently reported a case involving an unidentified assailant who was eventually tracked with the using photos stored on social media. The technological implications of the case reveal that authorities now have an extended Facebook (or any other social media network with pictures)-assisted photo bank ready and available for their search needs. Though we're not sure where constitutional rights and or Internet privacy stand here, the fact of the matter is that Facial Recognition Units are very real and becoming much more common in law enforcement. Would be criminals beware!
