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.

SCOTUS Decision Could Lead to Release of 46,000 Calif. Inmates

May 23, 2011  | 


The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld a three-judge panel's order to release more than one-fourth of California's prison population to relieve overcrowding.

In a 5-4 decision, the court sided with the panel that had ruled inmates didn't have adequate access to medical care due to overcrowding.

One federal overseer of the state's prison system has recommended releasing 46,000 of the sickest inmates, which is one-fourth of the state correctional system.

Crime is going to go up in California with all of the law enforcement cuts being made and now up to 46,000 felons are to be released. According to one article that I read about this, the sickest prisoners won't be released; it's going to be other prisoners. With California being a "may issue" concealed carry state and the state legislature actually attempting to outlaw open carry of unloaded weapons, citizens cannot adequately protect themselves while away from their homes, and the criminals know it. San Bernardino and Riverside counties will be some of the hardest hit.

Really?? The one thing that frustrates me is surely they know how many beds they have...and they get to a point of 46,000 needing to be released...all the ones with medical conditions? hmmm

Remedy! Sent all the illegals back, close the borders, remove the gangs, and execute the murderers and rapists. Problem solved next!
