Facial Recognition Technology Working Group (language from S. 124)
Facial recognition technology. After analyzing any law enforcement needs to use facial recognition technology, analyzing any potential inaccuracies or other limitations in the capacities of that technology, including implicit biases, and an opportunity for community involvement and feedback, the Council shall recommend a statewide policy on law enforcement officers’ acquisition and use of facial recognition technology, in light of the moratorium set forth in Sec. 14 of this act. If the Council will recommend the authority for officers to acquire and use facial recognition technology, the Council shall recommend a plan to mitigate any implicit bias that results from the use of that technology.
