Police Surveillance: Facial Recognition Use in Your Backyard

Contact this Organization

Open the Government & MuckRock

The use of facial recognition technology by police departments, both small and large, has quietly proliferated throughout the country. MuckRock and Open the Government sent over 112 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the largest police agencies to answer a number of questions about their use of facial recognition technology. This project was launched to help the public investigate their local police agencies’ use of facial recognition technology. This resource includes a guide on the project and a database of all information collected so far.
