Surveillance Technology Oversight Project (S.T.O.P.) reviewed the New York Police Department’s use of facial recognition over the last decade. Facial recognition in law enforcement often misidentifies individuals, especially people of color and women, and has impacts on civil, constitutional, and privacy rights. The report highlights legislative responses to facial recognition, and outlines the harms caused by its overuse. Grantee S.T.O.P. calls for additional regulation at the local and national level to protect citizen’s civil liberties.
