Facial Recognition

Ask The Expert

Roger Rodriguez

Manager of Image Analytics

Roger served over 20 years with the NYPD, where he spearheaded the NYPD’s first dedicated facial recognition unit. The unit has conducted more than 8,500 facial recognition investigations, with over 3,000 possible matches and approximately 2,000 arrests. Roger’s enhancement techniques are now recognized worldwide and have changed law enforcement’s approach to the utilization of facial recognition technology.

"Boston's Finest," a police reality show following several Boston Police Department officers, will begin airing on Wednesday on TNT. The eight-episode series will air at 9 p.m.

Series producer Donnie Wahlberg has said the show won't just be a Boston take on Fox's "Cops" and will include a more personal look at the officers' lives away from their law enforcement duties.

The show will give viewers "an up-close and very personal look at what it takes to protect and serve one of America's greatest and most distinctive cities," according to a TNT release.

Several officers from various units will be featured, including officers Diamantino "D" Araujo, Manny Canuto, Myles Lawton, Jenn Penton, and Sgt. Robert Twitchell.

"We follow different units," Wahlberg told the Boston Globe. "We ride with the gang unit a lot, the fugitive task force, patrolmen, and the SWAT team as well. Different people from those units stepped forward and became the central people that we focused on."

Editor's note: Listen to our "Boston's Finest" podcast with Sgt. Robert Twitchell.

Do you really want your face on television in this day and age?Its just a bad idea and how many law enforcement programs can the public watch and learn from? It just goes to show us how much crime, lack of common sense and scum is roaming the streets these days. I see a dedicated Law Enforcement channel coming to a cable network in the near future.
