Facial Recognition as a Less Bad Option

Discourse Type: Policy Papers

This Essay, produced for the Hoover Institute as part of the Aegis series, defends the police use of facial recognition technology to identify suspects in crime footage or to locate individuals with outstanding warrants. It argues that the perils that flow from facial recognition can be mitigated through sensible limits without banning the technology, and that in any case, the risks of facial recognition are less bad than the options police have without its use.
