Could be worrying..

Perhaps NT isn't so bad, but I do recall Queensland or NSW cops being a bit of a laughing stock for mistaken identity and fatal shootings some years back.

Given how accurate FR software is (well, last time I read any stats which probably is quite a few years back), room for much pain, innocents arrested, and great hilarity all round.

Though it could have its uses.. "You say you're Malcolm Turnbull? The computer says otherwise. We'll add identity theft to the list of charges. And as to those you claim are your 'protection detail', who just interfered with arresting officers..."
