San Francisco Face Recognition Ban And Surveillance Regulation Details Examined

By IPVM Team, Published on May 14, 2019

San Francisco passed the legislation 8-1 today. While the face recognition 'ban' has already received significant attention over the past few weeks, there is more to it for the surveillance industry.

What has been largely ignored is that the same legislation increases regulation on various surveillance technologies, including license plate recognition, CCTV, and gunshot detection, among other common surveillance technologies, in addition to the 'ban'.

Inside this note, we examine:

  • Why face recognition is banned
  • When face recognition is allowed
  • How surveillance cameras are included in this legislation
  • Why and how city surveillance camera users must apply for approval
  • Who is exempt
  • How is enforcement to be handled
  • How violations will be handled
  • San Francisco is not the first city to pass such a law, we examine who is
  • Why some citizens are against the law
  • What are potential problems
