The Department of Homeland Security is set to test new facial recognition technology at the the Tri-Cities Americans home opener at Toyota Center in Kennewick next weekend as part of its long term mission “to identify terrorists and criminals in public areas.”
The DHS will work with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to run the test during a portion of a game on September 21.
Hockey fans who don’t want to become an unwitting part of the test will have to follow signs routing them away from the cameras.
PNNL staff members will participate in the test, which will attempt to match their identities with photographs as they move around the stadium.
