NYPD Commences Use Of Iris Scans Of Suspects

• AP
Along with fingerprints and mug shots, the New York City Police Department is now taking photographs of the irises of crime suspects.

The NYPD says the images will be used to help avoid cases of mistaken identity. The process takes about five seconds. Every suspect will be scanned again using a handheld device shortly before they are arraigned to make sure the irises match.

Years ago Israel security developed iris scans to search for terrorist suspects close up and from a distance. No doubt police in the U.S. will use  this technology to track Americans and  invade their privacy.

Israel was the first to use face identification cameras at airports that used prior photos to discover terrorists and criminal suspects, even males dressed and made up to look like a woman. Even if someone dyed their hair, grew a beard;  prior camera photos that measured the depth and width of a person’s face, e.g. nose, mouth, forehead, chin, cheeks could tell who someone was.. U.S. Government began suing these software cameras in New York City before 9-11 to record and read faces of persons driving automobiles on certain streets. If someone’s face was already registered, the camera also recorded the face of the front seat passenger, then later repeated the process whenever cameras spotted the passenger driving, registering their front seat passenger’s face.
