Commercial Facilities including Banks and Other Cash-Rich Targets
Every month there continue to be robberies of every kind of facility; from banks to convenience store to cash advance offices. Facial recognition against national files of known criminals will give law enforcement alerts that can preempt both robberies and the more serious consequences when such activities go unexpectedly wrong.
Some applications include:
Banks that are particularly vulnerable to robbery may use the technology to monitor individuals entering the bank and quickly compare them to known criminals.
Portable facial recognition technology may be moved into banks that are in the suspected path of a string of robberies and individuals entering the bank can be compared to images of the perpetrators of earlier robberies.
Large pawnshops may identify customers against files of known criminal and thereby prevent receiving and holding stolen goods.
