You have made clear you want the government to introduce a national legal framework for police forces using facial recognition technology. Are you comfortable with the Met using this technology without such a framework in place?
I have been clear that the Government should legislate to provide guidance which would clarify the use of Live Facial Recognition. In the absence of this, the MPS are clear that the legal framework currently in place, including the Bridges vs South Wales Police Judgement which found in favour of use of LFR by the police, permits the use of LFR. The legal mandate has been published here: https://www.met.police.uk/advice/advice-and-information/facial-recognition/live-facial-recognition/
