San Diego to suspend facial recognition tech program

Following a long campaign by rights groups, a facial recognition platform used by over 30 agencies in San Diego, California, will be suspended on January 1, 2020. Launched in 2012, the program allows local, state, and federal agencies to share a database of facial recognition scans. As per reports, between 2016 and 2018, over 65,500 scans were performed by officers.
