London’s Metropolitan Police Service will be testing facial recognition technology in a handful of locations across the central core of the British capital on both Monday and Tuesday for eight hours each day.
This trial marks the seventh such trial in London since 2016. The Met has said in addition to the December 17-18 tests, there will be three more, which have yet to be scheduled.
According to the police, these trials, which "will be used overtly with a clear uniformed presence and information leaflets will be disseminated to the public," are set to take place specifically in the vicinity of Soho, Piccadilly Circus, and Leicester Square.
