Amazon’s plan to help police identify citizen’s in real-time and predict crimes

Two days ago NPR revealed that the Orlando Police Department is using Amazon’s facial recognition to identify people’s faces.

Earlier this year, the ACLU sent an FOI request to the police department asking for more information about Amazon Rekognition.

The title the police gave to the ACLU’s FOI request is both telling and disturbing it is called, ‘Conserving The Peace Through Values Driven Service’.

Because nothing says ‘values driven service’ like spying on the public.

“Amazon Rekognition performs real-time recognition of persons of interest from camera live streams against your private database of face metadata…”

A private database of face metadata is just a fancy way of saying private watch lists.

Amazon’s facial recognition program is being sold to police departments for as little as $6.00 a month. The above video confirms what I have been warning people about, ‘smart cities’ are really police cam-share programs in disguise.

How are police ‘conserving the peace’ by creating a network of 10,000 spying neighbors and installing DHS’s, I.R.I.S. surveillance cameras everywhere?

Police and Amazon work together to track citizens

According to their website, Amazon will work with law enforcement to spy on and track citizens.

“You can run real-time analysis on video from Amazon Kinesis Video Streams or analyze images as they are uploaded to Amazon S3. For large jobs, Amazon Rekognition can work together with AWS Batch process and analyze thousands of images or videos stored in Amazon S3.”

Amazon boasts that police can track people even if they can’t see their faces.
