SURVEILLANCE CITY: NYPD CAN USE MORE THAN 15,000 CAMERAS TO TRACK PEOPLE USING FACIAL RECOGNITION IN MANHATTAN, BRONX AND BROOKLYN

BY AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) has the ability to track people in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx by running images from 15,280 surveillance cameras into invasive and discriminatory facial recognition software, a new Amnesty International investigation reveals.

Thousands of volunteers from around the world participated in the investigation, tagging 15,280 surveillance cameras at intersections across Manhattan (3,590), Brooklyn (8,220) and the Bronx (3,470). Combined, the three boroughs account for almost half of the intersections (47%) in New York City, constituting a vast surface area of pervasive surveillance.
