COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state's attorney general has named two former Ohio Supreme Court justices to a commission that will study the use of facial recognition technology by law enforcement.
The American Civil Liberties Union, which had asked for a commission seat, was absent from Attorney General Mike DeWine's list on Thursday. Included were former high court justices Yvette McGee Brown and Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, a county prosecutor, a sheriff and a police chief.
Since June, local and state law enforcement officers could use the facial recognition software to match images of possible suspects or victims with Ohio driver's license photos. Critics have called the technology's use intrusive.
DeWine wants the group to review whether Ohio should have additional protocols in place for the system that allows the use of facial recognition software.
