Dutch police facial recognition database includes 1.3 million people

A database used by the Dutch police for facial recognition technology currently includes 1.3 million people and 2.2 million photos.

A photo is added to the database if someone is suspected of committing a crime with a jail sentence of at least four years attached.

As yet, there is no real debate in the Netherlands about facial recognition technology, and what discussion there is takes place ‘behind the screen’.
