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.

Bills for Extra LE Response for Ferguson, Mo., Coming Due

August 29, 2014  | 

Now that the unrest in Ferguson apparently has subsided, the bills soon will come due, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

For two weeks, law enforcement agencies from those in small cities all the way to the Missouri Highway Patrol and the state’s National Guard sent officers and tactical equipment to the small suburban town. From gas masks to overtime, the costs are being tallied.

Generally it’s still too early to quantify exactly what the total public cost will be for the extra law enforcement since Michael Brown was fatally shot Aug. 9 — but no one doubts it’s well into the millions.

The state has budgeted $3.455 million this year to pay expenses that any state agency incurred during an emergency declared by the governor, in addition to $4 million for emergency duties of the Missouri National Guard.

State Budget Director Linda Luebbering said none of that money has yet been allocated, but that Gov. Jay Nixon’s decision to declare an emergency and call in the Missouri National Guard means some yet-undetermined amount will be. She said it will likely be the first week of September before the amount is set.
