The Orlando Police Department is working with Amazon to test a high-tech facial-recogition system, according to records made public Tuesday by the American Civil Liberties Union.

"In this political climate, to be clear, it's not a stretch of the imagination to see this being a tool used to round up immigrants, to target activists, and to surveil entire communities", ACLU of OR executive director David Rogers said.
The company has developed a powerful and unsafe new facial recognition system and is actively helping governments deploy it. Amazon calls the service "Rekognition".
Amazon's response is clear: if a client is using Rekognition in an unlawful or irresponsible manner, it will put a stop to it. "At this time in the pilot, as it is still very early on in this process, we have no data that supports or does not support that the Rekognition technology works". Amazon Rekognition is a technology that helps automate recognizing people, objects, and activities in video and photos based on inputs provided by the customer. And if public agencies are unwilling to discuss these programs with the public, they're far less likely to create internal policies governing use of the tech.
