Facial Recognition Security System to be Deployed in Mexico
Almost unnoticed, last week a company was awarded an $8 million contract to install a "surveillance monitoring" system in Mexico (no apparent indication of source of the contract in the press release).
To speed their installation of the pilot program, the company, Safeguard Security Holdings is partnering with a large Mexican cable television provider and will train Mexican Security/Police Officials on how to use the system. Unclear what this system is beyond a series of IP cameras. But the company President did say:
"The system is designed for general security surveillance in city-wide public areas with certain locations equipped with facial recognition technology."
"Train Mexican Security and police officials"?
