How does Metplod tech accuracy compare with China's implementation? I'm not saying plod tech is always bad but form long experience I know the Met like to pay over the odds for second best as many former colleagues will testify! Can anybody comment? I've walked around Oxford Circus occasionally and that square at Stratford many a time and its always very, very busy so it seems to me that they only ran their cameras at each location for an hour or so.
If I was the first person bagged on plodcam in the UK Id want to get into the Guinness Book of Records!
That one person was bagged in just a couple of camera hours with such a small database of faces means they probably loaded the mugs of know local wanteds into the system or they just got very lucky.
Forget looking for fugitives, how long before Border Force have the system up and running at every airport making it impossible to go on hols before settling your tax bills or outstanding tv licence?
