Facial recognition technology for Champions League Final

Facial recognition technology will be used at the UEFA Champions League Final in Cardiff in June.

Police say it will be one of the largest security operations undertaken.

South Wales Police has secured funding from the Home Office to develop automated facial recognition technology for policing. The UEFA Champions League finals in Cardiff give us a unique opportunity to test and prove the concept of this technology in a live operational environment, which will hopefully prove the benefits and the application of such technology across policing.
