Equality and Human Rights Commission calls on Government to suspend police use of live facial recognition and predictive policing. It’s critical that Government acts now. These experimental technologies have a serious, irrevocable impact on people’s rights and the health of our democracy.
Serious questions should be asked of the Home Office as to how & why police were let off the leash without proper oversight or legal frameworks to deploy these Orwellian technologies in the first place.
Parliamentary committees, 25+ rights groups, MPs, regulators + the public have been raising the alarm on these dangerous policing technologies for some time.
