If Police are using GPlay call recrding apps then they will be using Google Lens Facial Recognition.

Saying it twice doesn't make it right either.

If Police are using Google Play call recording apps they will also be using Google Lens Facial Recognition, without any proper oversight. In word, they will be using any App on an Android phone that 'helps' them do their job at the local level, without any overview context of how this affects democracy at the abstracted level.

Many forces now have phone access to remote Cisco IP Camera footage and screen grabs.Linked with Facebook content, in a word, it's their form of monitoring utopia and they want such use to remain under the radar, without any Journalists drawing attention to grubby data methods.

We really have moved from having a Police force that were there, to primarily protect from harm to one that primarily monitors and goes on fishing expeditions, creating a somewhat hostile environment regarding every step you take, and fines for very minor indiscretion, because it's such an easy cash cow.
