UK Biometrics Commissioner criticizes UK police for not revealing facial recognition plans

The UK Biometrics Commissioner has criticized the Home Office and police for failing to address key privacy issues relating to the use of facial recognition, according to a report by The Register.
Professor Paul Wiles condemned the police for its growing database of facial images (many of which are illegally stored), as well as the government for failing to have a formal document detailing its biometrics strategy.
He recommended that the government should hold an official public meeting outlining a public trial of facial recognition technology next week at the Notting Hill Carnival.
The backlash comes a week after reports regarding the Home Office’s plans to invest £5 million (US$6.4 million) on a facial recognition software to be initially used by law enforcement and eventually other public sector organizations.
The tender drew some controversy because of the Home Office’s plans to create a nationwide facial recognition software instead of relying on disparate and disconnected systems operated by different police forces.
