Some entrepreneurial retired and current police officers have devised a facial recognition system that they hope will prevent a number of robberies and other crimes.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Blue Line Technology has installed their system in a pilot program at multiple locations in the St. Louis area.
At one spot, a local MotoMart, the system will not allow the doors to the store to open unless patrons look directly into the camera, allowing the system to get a view of the person's face.
This could inhibit people from entering the store wearing masks or other such material concealing the face.
