The House Committee on Oversight and Reform has sent letters to the mayors of 10 metropolitan cities, requesting their policies regarding facial recognition technology, according to a report by GCN.
Concerned about the privacy of innocent citizens amid reports that facial recognition technology (FRT) is less accurate at identifying people of color, Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Ranking Member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) sent letters to the mayors of Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
In the letters, the mayors were asked about information “relating to the retention and use of photographs collected by or accessible to” local law enforcement agencies, manufacturers, providers or federal agencies.
They were also asked to provide a full inventory of their facial recognition systems, including details about costs, technology updates and whether any aspects of the systems were funded by federal grants.
