Welsh police use of facial recog tech – it's so 'lawful', rules High Court

mark l 2 Silver badge

I find it ironic that judges who wear silly wigs to make it harder to be recognised outside of the court room, find a technology for tracking people from their faces lawful.

I also wonder how use of this tech fits in with the rehabilitation of offenders act since it is going to be picking out anyone who it has on the PNC even if the conviction is classed as spent. And no doubt the plod will then pull them over to see what they are up to, even though they might be at work or with friends at the time who are unaware of their past conviction.
