In 2022, Virginia passed legislation (SB 741) that allows law enforcement and government agencies to use facial recognition technology, reversing the state's complete ban that was enacted in 2021. The law mandates that law enforcement agencies must:
Implement a facial recognition policy in place before trial or purchase
Produce an annual report with transparent reporting and audit trails
Use technology that has been tested as 98+% across all demographics by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”)
Complete training on the responsible use of facial recognition technology
The following blog post will take you through some of the requirements, and demonstrate how Clearview AI enables law enforcement in Virginia to comply with SB 741, so your agency can start using facial recognition technology to help combat crime and keep your community safe!
