I do not feel simply handing out leaflets to people once their biometric data is already captured is sufficient in terms of ‘engagement’ when it comes to the use of Facial Recognition Technology. What further community engagement will the Met be undertaking as part of the use of Facial Recognition Technology?

In addition to leaflets and signage on the ground when Live Facial Recognition is used, the MPS will notify the public through social and mainstream media. A programme of local community engagement working with Independent Advisory Groups and other partners is taking place in advance of each deployment.
