I heard the other day, Judith Collins on radio demanding a review, raising the alarm on privacy blah blah blah…
Be assured, if Nats were the govt/corporation Judith would be quietly ushering in $9 million worth of the exact same thing seeing as we have a shadow govt/corp and all. And … Adern would be parroting what Collins is saying right now. It’s all farcical and many of us see right through it. All globalist puppets, and Collins posing as opposition. It is all created that way to make you think you have a choice every three years. (Pam Vernon, EWR)
Police have been quietly setting up a $9 million facial recognition system that can take a live feed from CCTV cameras and identify people from it.
This would push New Zealand into new territory for tracking citizens.
It will be run by a non-police contractor – US firm Dataworks Plus – and collect 15,000 facial images a year, with that expected to expand up to 10-fold.
Some of this information is contained in an Official Information Act (OIA) response police provided to Stuff last year, but tried to withhold from RNZ last week, until a complaint was made to the Ombudsman.
RNZ made inquiries with other agencies after revealing that the Internal Affairs Department has been – quietly, too – setting up a $20m passport processing system.
