DHS wants facial recognition border surveillance system

Prophecy Sign:  The global surveillance/police state


Technology and the global surveillance state go hand in hand. The ongoing and exponential development of this police state grid will help the Beast system of the Antichrist achieve it's goal of total dominion and authority over every person on the planet.

It was given power to wage war against God's holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. Daniel 12:4 NIV

DHS wants facial recognition border surveillance system
The Homeland Security Department is exploring technology that would use facial and iris recognition to track the departure of foreign visitors, according to contracting documents.  “At land border exit[s], currently there are no biometrics captured resulting in an inability to accurately verify that a departing traveler matches a specific entry record," states a market research survey released on Wednesday. "To biometrically identify the broadest set of travelers as well as to discourage spoofing attempts, it is envisioned that the exit solution may utilize more than one biometrics modality." The system officials have in mind would be deployed at crossings for pedestrians and drivers.

Seattle considering $1.6 million facial recognition surveillance system
Privacy advocates in the Pacific Northwest are squaring off with local police over plans to install a system that would link surveillance camera video with databases containing photographs of hundreds of thousands of area residents. In Seattle, Washington, the City Council will soon decide on whether or not they should approve an ordinance that green-lights a $1.6 million federal grant, a large chunk of which will be used to purchase sophisticated facial recognition software that supporters of the measure say would help stop crime. Those Department of Homeland Security dollars would let the Seattle police pay for software that digitally scans surveillance camera footage and then tries to match images of the individuals caught on tape with any one of the 350,000-or-so people who have been photographed previously by King County, Washington law enforcement.
