    Facial Recognition Technology can enhance the tracking system in criminal enforcement laws. By having a system that recognizes face and its facial expressions for people who enter the jail system or commit other law enforcement offenses, the investigations cost will drop and the detection of those in the system will become faster and efficient decreasing the exposure to dangerous situations and increasing the planing and controlled execution of needed responses by our law enforcement in each particular situation.
    Face recognition will also reduce sending to jail or to detention facilities people that are diagnosed with mental illnesses and autism, thus guiding our officers when responding to a call.
    Face recognition needs to have a well structured system, will be faster and more effective than fingerprints especially in critical decision making situations when every second counts.
    Tracking criminals and potential criminals is important. It will provide stronger protection to our communities, and will give an invaluable tool to all police office force.
    Thanks for protecting our communities by improving the safety and technology of our law enforcement agencies.
