The FBI Biometric Center of Excellence (BCOE) has sponsored a series of interagency facial recognition legal and policy forums — the U.S. Government Facial Recognition Legal Series. Representatives from law enforcement, national security, and intelligence agencies were invited to participate.
Series topics included baselining the current state of facial recognition technology, outlining current and future use requirements and research scenarios, discussing opportunities to collaborate across the federal agency landscape, and assessing how best to develop legal and policy underpinning to support effective deployment of facial recognition technology. The range of legal and policy concerns includes privacy, interoperability, standards development, evidentiary limitations, and data sharing.
