Big Brother Software: Police Officers Can Check Your Biometric Data Using Only An iPhone!

Posted on: July 15, 2011

Law-enforcement agencies in the U.S. are gearing up to kit out police forces with the technology in September in a move likely to raise privacy concerns, reports the Wall Street Journal. The device, called Moris, is a piece of hardware that attaches to an iPhone and is designed to recognise whether the person has a criminal history from an image of their face or the iris of the eye. ‘The Moris system analyses 235 unique features in each iris and uses an algorithm to match that person with their identity if they are in the database,’ reports the WSJ. A police officer would need to be no more than five feet away for the facial recognition software to work, based on an image of their face alone. [1] Previously, similar searches took several hours and required picking up the phone to call to other police departments for more information. After an inmate escaped from a correctional institution in Rhode Island last year by assuming the identity of another inmate who was eligible for parole, the state’s Department of Corrections installed BI2’s iris identification system in its prisons. Officers now verify the identity and criminal history of an inmate by scanning their irises when they are admitted and later discharged from the correctional facility. BI2 Technologies A police officer uses the new MORIS device to take a picture of Sean Mullin, chief executive of BI2 Technologies, to test its facial recognition technologies. Sheriffs soon started asking BI2’s executives to build a mobile device that would allow them to tap iris, facial and fingerprint recognition technologies to instantly match suspects on the street against the database of people who already have been enrolled in the system. [2]

A new iPhone accessory will help police units identify suspects and look up a criminal record. The accessory uses a picture of the person’s face or iris to identify them. The system, called Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System (MORIS), can identify a person via facial recognition software, or by the color of their eye, or iris. [3] Police in the U.S. may soon be getting an iPhone add-on that will equip them with a facial recognition technology called MORIS (Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System). The device attaches to an iPhone like a case and allows the police to take a photo of a person to determine if they are a suspect or have a criminal history. [4]

Facial Recognition through the iPhone Dozens of law enforcement agencies across the national will start using facial recognition devices starting in September. BI2 Technologies is offering up the technology in the form of a modified iPhone, costing about $3,000 each! They say police need only snap a photo of a person, and it will cross check their facial characters of those on wanted lists around the nation. Some advocates say it’s an invasion of privacy, since police don’t need permission to take the photo. [5] The devices, which include the attached iPhones, will be each be sold for $3000. According to Forbes, BI2 has agreed to pump out 1,000 of these identification gadgets to approximately 40 agencies. Law enforcement has yet to determine the proper guidelines for using these mobile recognition devices, which may raise some privacy concerns. Officers currently have a policy to ask for permission when taking photos used in facial-recognition technology but legally they don’t need consent according to Scott McCallum, a systems analyst for the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. [6]

The MORIS iPhone link from Bi2 Technologies is a case-like accessory that snaps onto the handset to enable officers to take biometric scans in the field. Previously this kind of mobile tech was limited to military use, but soon police will be able to scan irises, fingerprints and faces on the spot, and then immediately look up identities and rap sheets for prior arrests, outstanding warrants and other data. Law enforcement is tickled pink by this technology, since it will undoubtedly accelerate policework. About 40 police forces will soon be getting roughly 1,000 of these units (at about $3,000 a pop). [7] The MORIS device attaches to the back of an iPhone, adding roughly 1.75 inches to the thickness of the smartphone. Police officers armed with the tool can take a photo of a person’s face from about five feet away, or scan his or her iris from about six inches, and wirelessly beam that data to law enforcement databases elsewhere to look for a match. It can also perform remote fingerprint matching. [8] Made by BI2 Technologies, the device is known as the MORIS case and it has been used before in the military. The MORIS case is said to be able to take photos of a person’s face from up to five feet away, or even scan their iris from up to six inches away. It will then be automatically cross-checked against a police database for criminal history. [9] Plymouth, Mass. -based BI2 Technologies developed a portable system, called “Moris” for Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System, that attaches to an iPhone, allowing a police officer to take pictures of a face from up to five feet away, or scan a person’s eyes from up to six inches away. [10] Simply by equipping a so-called MORIS opnbrkt”Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System”clsbrkt device to an iPhone, it will be possible to scan faces from as far as five feet away and perform iris scans at distances of six inches or less. The same technology that makes it possible to spot an Al Qaeda insurgent in Afghanistan or nab a suspected terrorist in New York City also makes it possible to nab an undocumented migrant worker in El Paso or Laredo. Therein lies the problem. [11] Police in the U.S. may soon have a new mobile tool to aid in the identification of criminals. It’s called MORIS, Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System, and includes both a retinal scanner and camera to scan suspects from as far as five feet away. [12]

The MORIS device, developed by Bl2 Technologies, has a retinal scanner and can take a photo of a person from as far as five feet away. It then automatically checks the prison databases and may eventually include state and country-wide police databases, including those from the FBI and DMV. This news has obviously raised concerns on privacy, government surveillance issues, and the potential for abuse if the technology got into the wrong hands. People still fear that their personal information could be easily accessed without them knowing simply by an officer snapping a quick photo. [4] From a law enforcement standpoint, police officers seem to like it. It’s a technology that lets them get to the bottom of a situation quickly. In the technology’s defense, it’s tough to use MORIS to abuse a person’s rights if an officer is not already in the process of abusing them. In an interview with BI2’s chief executive Sean Mullin last year, he told PopSci that the responses of privacy groups and civil liberties advocates are entirely appropriate, but that he thinks the technology passes legal muster. The facial recognition technology requires a frontal facial image taken from close proximity, he says–in other words, it requires consent. [8] Police in Massachusetts will be one of the first civilian law enforcement agencies to be equipped with a controversial new facial recognition technology called MORIS. MORIS is an iPhone add-on that allows officers to scan a person’s features and determine if they have a criminal history or are wanted for any number of offenses. [13]

The technology lives in a somewhat gray area of the law. It’s generally permissible to take a photo of anyone in a public space, but when a law enforcement agent does so–and especially when he or she then cross references it against a criminal database–that could constitute a search, and therefore should require a warrant. It’s another one of those situations where technology has simply outpaced the law ( you would think Ben Franklin of all people would’ve seen mobile facial recognition software coming). [8] The Wall St Journal also reported that Google rejected a programme which would let people take a photo then use it to search the web for a match. B12 told the paper that it does not sell on the data collected using its devices but that it hopes to integrate the search with the FBI’s registry of fingerprints. ‘Sheriffs and law enforcement should not use this on anybody but suspected criminals,’ said the firm’s chief executive Sean Mullin. [14] Of course, as Emily Steel and Julia Angwin point out in the Wall Street Journal, taking photos of people passing through a public space is fully enabled by law. It’s perfectly acceptable for a law enforcement to stop and detain someone if they have “reasonable suspicion” that a crime has been committed – or is about to be committed. What if they just don’t like your face? (Maybe you forgot to shave that morning, and your ironic hipster beard is starting to look a little too much like an Osama beard.) [11]

Tying pictures of people who are not suspected of committing a crime – not to mention scanning irises – is new legal territory. A sheriff who worked with BI2 as MORIS was being developed says he will tell his officers not to use the device without reasonable suspicion. Because this is an untested area of the law, George Washington University law professor Orrin Kerr tells The Wall Street Journal that a warrant might be required before a suspect could be forced to open his eyes. [15] MORIS will replace conventional identification procedures which require an officer to take a picture, download it to a computer and run facial recognition software on the image. The new device does all this on the fly and in one relatively small package. It was create by BI2 Technologies, a small company from Plymouth, Mass, and uses facial recognition software from Conway, NH-based Animetrics. Privacy advocates are leery of the device which can scan individuals from a distance possibly without their consent. [12] Mullin, a serial software entrepreneur, founded BI2 in 2005 with retired Plymouth County Sheriff Peter Flynn. With 11 employees, it’s privately funded and profitable – although Mullin declined to talk specifically about revenue. He said the MORIS device is now entering production, with a go-to-market date in the early fall. Worcester, Mass. contractor Columbia Technologies is handling the manufacturing, he said. The Journal reported in Wednesday’s print edition that facial recognition is prompting concerns about whether or not using such devices would constitute a “search,” requiring a warrant. [16]

In Pinellas County, Fla., the sheriff’s office uses digital cameras to take pictures of people, download the pictures to laptops, then use facial-recognition technologies to search for matching faces. Deputies use the technique to verify the identity and search for criminal records of individuals such as people they have stopped who aren’t carrying other forms if ID, as well as accident victims and homeless people. The sheriff’s office says it has run thousands of identity searches this way since 2004, resulting in 700 arrests. BI2 Technologies he MORIS device, which attaches to the back of a smartphone, weighs 12.5 ounces. [2] The MORIS case from BI2 Technologies is an iPhone add-on that allows police officers to take a quick photo with the device’s camera and cross-check criminal records databases to find a matching entry. That’s not all it does. [17] Here’s how it works: To scan a person’s iris, police officers can hold the special iris-scanning camera on device, called MORIS, about 5 to 6 inches away from an individual’s irises. After snapping a high resolution photo, the MORIS system analyzes 235 unique features in each iris and uses an algorithm to match that person with their identity if they are in the database. [2] With the device, which attaches to an iPhone, an officer can snap a picture of a face from up to five feet away, or scan a person’s irises from up to six inches away, and do an immediate search to see if there is a match with a database of people with criminal records. [18]

The device can recognize faces at a distance of 5 feet, read fingerprints, and even scan the iris of a potential suspect and then cross-reference that information with a national database. MORIS seems like it would be a thorn in the side of would-be criminals, but it’s also raising eyebrows amongst law abiding citizens over potential privacy concerns. [13] By taking a photograph from a distance of five feet or less, cops will be able to check someone’s face against a database of criminal photos. It can even scan someone’s iris. There are interesting legalities involved — facial recognition is a hot button issue when it comes to privacy law, and only certain states are granting access to their photo database. Either way, it’s a cool reminder about how robust the iPhone platform is. [19] For the facial recognition, an officer takes a photo of a person at a distance of about 2 feet to 5 feet. Based on technologies from Animetrics Inc., the system analyzes about 130 distinguishing points on the face, such as the distance between a person’s eye and nose. It then scans the database for likely matches. [2]

Dozens of law enforcement groups in several states plan to outfit police with hand-held devices that officers can use to scan irises or take photos of a person’s face, the WSJ reports. [20] Which faces will police officers scan in a crowd? And when do law enforcement agents have the right to scan your irises? Having your iris scanned, as some have suggested, is tantamount to being fingerprinted in public – and potentially, without you even knowing about it. [11]

In Massachusetts, the police department in Brockton, as well as other law enforcement agencies, have already used the devices in pilot programs, according to BI2’s website. “Facial recognition is absolutely the least of what this is about,” Mullin said. “This is really about iris and fingerprint.” [16] BI2 agreed to supply about 1,000 devices, which cost about $3,000 each, to approximately 40 law enforcement agencies. “We are living in an age where a lot of people try to live under the radar and in the shadows and avoid law enforcement,” said Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, Ariz., who will be equipping 75 deputies with the devices this autumn. The National Sheriff’s Association gave the device its endorsements. Some officials are anxious about adding the device to the police crime-fighting arsenal, especially considering privacy issues that may come up with its usage. [10] Using 3G or wireless technology it then links up with millions of pictures on databases to find a match. Manufacturer B12 says it has agreements with 40 law enforcement agencies to supply them with the 1,000 of the $3,000 devices. [14]

Within the next 60 days, state law enforcement agencies across the nation are set to implement a new facial profiling technology that will enable them to scan faces of people in a crowd and cross-check this scan data with information already in their databases. [11] Do you have the right to resist an iris scan if you have been detained? Thus far, the courts have not yet had to rule on face- and iris-recognition technology. As law professor Orin Kerr from George Washington University points ou t, “A warrant might be required to force someone to open their eyes.” It’s perfectly possible that Facial Profiling by law enforcement authorities will cause a civil libertarian uproar. [11]

Today, an investigation revealed law enforcement obtained increasing numbers of search warrants for individual Facebook accounts. Since the nature of information on the social network is considered similar to that kept by banking institutions, current law holds that while a warrant is needed to peruse the record, law enforcement has no obligation to inform the individual his or her account may have been reviewed. As more technological innovations like Moris change the way law enforcement can track down suspects, gather evidence and now even “read” faces, they will continue to inspire robust debate on their proper use and privacy implications. This post originally appeared at Mobiledia. [10] The Supreme Court will hear a case of whether law enforcement needs a warrant to install a GPS tracking device on a suspect’s car. The case involves a suspect convicted on evidence gained after police placed a GPS tracking device on his car. [10]

Law enforcement agencies across the U.S. may soon start using handheld facial recognition devices, raising concerns about privacy and legality in the digital age. [10] Dozens of law enforcement agencies are to be given hand held facial recognition software based on that used by soldiers to identify the Taliban. [14]

U.S. law enforcement agencies are planning on implementing a new mobile gadget that will be used to identify criminals. [6] Roughly 40 law enforcement agencies around the country are using iPhones to identify people with a criminal record, WSJ reports. [19]

The new MORIS system streamlines the process of identification compared to current methods. At the moment, law enforcement has to first take pictures with digital cameras, download those pictures to laptops and then run searches using facial-recognition technologies. [6] Law enforcement officials are about to get some new technology that will help them quickly identify persons of interest while in the field. [17]

BI2 says it plans to produce about 1,000 devices for distribution to about 40 law enforcement agencies. [20] Some of the devices are being funded through grants directed by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, which is tasked with advancing community policing in state and local law enforcement. [2]

Sold only for law enforcement use now, the company said it sees applications coming for health care and finance in the future. [21] ‘We are living in an age where a lot of people try to live under the radar and in the shadows and avoid law enforcement,’ said Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, Ariz, who has bought 75 units. [14] Some would argue that the more that law enforcement authorities know about us, the freer we are. They will be better able to protect us from the evil forces of Al Qaeda circulating in our midst. [11]

How will various police departments use the new MORIS device? Simply, identification. If officers arrest an individual for a crime, they can use the MORIS to quickly determine the suspect’s actual I.D. and criminal history. Of course, this is bound to raise serious concerns about privacy and constitutional rights. On the flip side, this tool could be wonderful for law-enforcement. Just imagine how many people are dishonest about their identity to police. What about wanted criminals who attempt to change their appearance to avoid capture? On site eye-scans would be a great tool in uncovering their deception. [17] There is also a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device. Police departments across the country are looking to implement the new system later this year. Of course, with a facial recognition system like this, there are many privacy concerns and issues. The police are not required to ask permission before snapping a pic of a person and identifying them, but according to some departments, they do anyways. [3] While facial recognition capabilities are at the core of potential controversy about the devices, iris and fingerprint technology are much more effective at establishing positive identification, Mullin said. Border patrol agents, for example, could use the technology to identify a dozen arrested suspects in the field, and quickly establish who is simply a would-be immigrant, and who might be involved in activities like drug smuggling, he said. [16]

Whether a warrant will be needed to use facial recognition or an iris scan is “a gray area of the law,” Kerr said. “A warrant might be required to force someone to open their eyes.” [22] The two saw an opportunity to use biometric data to address issues in the criminal justice system–such as the accidental release of the wrong inmates from jails and prisons. The company used existing iris recognition algorithms and camera technologies to build a product to recognize prison inmates called IRIS, the Inmate Identification and Recognition System, which they sold to more than 320 law-enforcement agencies in 47 states. The systems link to a national database of criminal records, managed by BI2,that includes iris and face images as well as other profile information about millions of individuals, such as outstanding warrants or whether they are a convicted sex offender. [2] The Mobile Offender Recognition and Identification System (MORIS) uses an augmented iPhone to snap pictures of faces, scan fingerprints, and even to image irises, and then combs through police databases looking for matching identities. This, understandably, has privacy and civil liberties advocates crying foul. [8] The device, which attaches onto an iPhone, lets police officers take a picture or scan an eye then compare the photo with a database of criminals. Hundreds of are due to be rolled out across states from Arizona to Massachusetts this September in the first deployment of its kind. [14]

The devices, made by BI2 Technologies, are attached to an iPhone for immediate searches of criminal databases, the Wall Street Journal (sub. req.) reports. [22] The iPhone-based MORIS can take pictures from up to 5 feet and scan irises at a 6-inch distance, then search criminal databases to hunt for matches. BI2 Technologies includes the National Sheriff’s Association among its endorsements, but other law-enforcement organizations have reservations. [15] The MORIS device is manufactured by BI2 Technologies, an 11-person company based in the quintessential New England town of Plymouth, Mass. The company was founded in 2006 by Mullin, who coordinated criminal justice programs for the state, and Peter Flynn, a former sheriff. [2] MORIS also comes with a small metallic rectangle in order to scan for fingerprints. The device is manufactured by a company called BI2 Technologies based in Plymouth, Mass. This 11-person company founded in 2006 in part by Peter Flynn a former sheriff. [6]

A device made by BI2 Technologies that attaches to Apple’s iPhone can reportedly be used to photograph a person’s face, irises and fingerprints for images that can then be used to identify them. [21] BI2 technologies’ Sean Mullin poses for a demonstration of the company’s mobile facial scanning technology, which can be used with iPhone or Android smart phones. [16] Love it or hate it, it appears that about 1,000 of the devices are due to reach 40 police organizations as early as September, with each device apparently costing $3,000. It also appears that the guys at BI2 Technologies have not forgotten about Android as the device is said to be available for the Android platform eventually. [9] About 1000 MORIS devices will be deployed to 40 police organizations by September, each costing $3000. They will also be made available to Android devices soon. [4] The gadget also collects fingerprints. Until recently, this type of portable technology has mostly been limited to military uses, for instance to identify possible insurgents in Iraq or Afghanistan. As soon as September of this year, over 1,000 MORIS units are expected to arrive at over 40 different police organizations across the country. They are about $3,000 a pop and will be available for Android OS in the future. [17]

Police forces across the country are planning to start using new mobile technology later this year that can identify suspects and instantly reveal their criminal history based on a picture of their face or iris, the colored portion of an eye. [2] Bernard Melekian, director of the COPS program, said challenges remain in developing guidelines for the proper use of the mobile recognition technology for police work. “If the purpose is to determine instantly an individual’s identity and determine whether they are wanted or have serious criminal history, that is not only a desirable use, it is an important use,” he says. [2]

Police across the United States have been given licence to photograph members of the public using iPhones, to establish whether their face matches a criminal database via facial recognition software. [1] Here’s the rub: Although the eye and fingerprint scans need to be performed up close — from six inches away and by contact, respectively — MORIS’ facial recognition feature (using the handset’s camera) doesn’t require the same proximity. [7] Google has been known to have the technology to identify people through facial recognition, but it has shied away from releasing to the public because of the privacy concerns associated with it. [3] Until now, privacy concerns about facial recognition have been private sector issues, for the most part, because that is where the technology has most often been used. [15]

Even as recently as the past 18 months, when companies like Facebook and Google have developed new facial recognition technologies that enable us to “tag” our friends in photos, there has been murmurs of dissent from privacy and civil libertarian activists. [11] A controversial piece of facial recognition technology (and a PopSci “Best of What’s New 2010” alum ) is rolling out in police stations across the country this fall, and naturally not everyone is happy about it. [8] At the end of the day, facial recognition technology doesn’t profile people, people do. [11]

For facial recognition, officers will be able to snap pictures from a farther range of up to 5 feet away. [6] The facial recognition system works from 2 to 5 feet away, and uses 130 attributes to make an identification. [3]

Officers can snap your pic from up to five feet away, and search your face in the database to pull up relevant data on you. This is sparking debate over government surveillance and privacy. Consider this: MORIS’ information comes from prison databases, but there are plans to incorporate police, FBI and state DMV records in the future. That’s right — the Department of Motor Vehicles. [7] To take an iris scan, a police officer has to hold the MORIS unit about 5 or 6 inches from a persons face. [3] Officers use the special camera on MORIS and take a picture of a person’s iris from 5 to 6 inches away. [6] The system will snap a picture, and then use 235 different features in the iris to identify the person. [3]

If you are out in public, I can take a picture of anybody. The deployment of the MORIS units comes after Facebook launched its own facial recognition software to help users identify its friends. [14] Facebook has recently come under fire for using facial recognition for photo postings. Google – whose informal corporate motto is “Don’t be evil” – considered and rejected a facial recognition app for its mobile phones. [15]

The MORIS, which stands for Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System, also includes a small metallic rectangle to scan fingerprints. [2] It is known as MORIS, short for Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System and has previously been used in Afghanistan by soldiers to ensure they are not giving out aid to insurgents. [14] Currently the technology, called “Moris” for Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System, is used by the military to identify insurgents. [22]

The accessory is called MORIS, an acronym which stands for Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System. [6]

Police in the U.S. may soon have a new mobile tool to aid in the identification of criminals. It’s called MORIS, Mobile Offender. [12] Police departments in several states are getting new high-tech devices that can scan irises, recognize faces and collect fingerprints. [22] UNDATED – Many police departments may soon have hand-held devices that will let them scan irises and “read” faces. [15]

The iris scan instantly matched suspects to past criminal records, but the fingerprint scanning still needed some work, says William Conlon, Brockton’s chief of police. “It has a lot of promise, it just wasn’t quite ready when we had it,” he says. [2] The deployment has sparked concerns amongst civil liberties campaigners who say that there is no precedent for forcing suspects to submit to a retina scan. In theory police could even be forced to produce a warrant to get them to do so. [14]

Taking photos in public spaces passed several legal challenges, but the idea of police scannonf pictures of people, even without a warrant, is new legal ground. [10] Folks who are extremely particular when it comes to their privacy, will probably be really upset to hear that the police will now be getting an iPhone add-on that will allow photos of people to be taken, and then cross-checked against a police database. [9] Although courts have not ruled on the issue, individuals ‘ including police officers ‘ can legally take photos of people in public spaces. [20] While it is legal for anybody to take a photo of another person in public, other standards may apply when it is done by a police officer after stopping and questioning somebody. [21]

Police officers in Brockton, Mass. were the first to test an initial prototype of the device last summer. [2]

B12 has contracts to sell about 1,000 of the Moris devices to 40 police agencies, the story says. [22] The MORIS device goes beyond technology already in use by some local law-enforcement agencies. [2]

The device’s debut comes at a time when legislators, courts, advocacy groups and society struggle to define technology’s role in privacy and security. Courts now are hearing cases specifically questioning whether searches in this digital age need a court-approved warrant, an issue highlighted by the controversy surrounding Moris. [10] ‘ raises privacy concerns over whether use of the device would require a search warrant, according to the Journal. [20]

The constant monitoring by “big brother”, which can now technically be done without even interacting with the “suspect”, raises the issue about privacy and the violation of constitutional rights over reasonable search. It looks like it will give police the upper hand when it comes to identifying suspects, allowing them to take the necessary steps to prevent a crime from happening and could potentially assist in the capture of escaped convicts. [9] The new technology will snap onto the back of a smartphone and be able to search records based on a scan of a suspects’ face or eyes. [6] The system analyses ‘130 distinguishing points on the face’, according to the newspaper. Asked whether UK police are planning to use the technology, a Home Office spokesman told Amateur Photographer : ‘We are not looking at anything like this particular scheme in the UK at the moment. [1]

Bill Johnson, executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, tells The Wall Street Journal there are still many legal and moral issues to consider. [15] The Wall Street Journal’s Law Blog covers the notable legal cases, trends and personalities of interest to the business community. [20] The Wall Street Journal interviewed George Washington University law professor Orin Kerr about the legal implications. [22]

From time to time, we will send you e-mail announcements on new features and special offers from The Wall Street Journal Online. [18]

BI2 has spent the last year tweaking the device, improving the fingerprint scanning and switching the camera position to vertical from horizontal, based on feedback from officers. The devices being launched this year by BI2 cost $3,000 apiece, which includes the price of the smart phone. [2] Each unit carries a $3,000 price tag, not to mention the expensive iPhone it operates with. There are plans to make Android-compatible MORIS devices, but no date has been set for their release. [13] The first batch of 1,000 MORIS devices will be distributed to police organizations around the country by September. [13]

Moris then completes an immediate search to see if the suspect is a match in the criminal database. [10] Some fear that the inclusions of mug shots in the searchable database would put the information of innocent individuals like address and other contact information in the hands of any officer capable of snapping a quick photo. [13]

The gadget lets a policeman take a picture from up to 5ft away and scan an iris from six inches away. [14] Facial recognition technology, a staple of high-tech action adventure films, is making its mainstream debut ‘ in reality. [20]
