Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said the city will deploy facial features recognition technology to help find fugitives and suspects in criminal activities.

Moreno also called on victims to help the city by pushing through complaints filed so that suspects are prosecuted and punished accordingly.

“We want to help you. We cannot do this alone,” he said when announcing the adoption of facial recognition technology to better track down offenders.

According to him, pools of data will allow an algorithm to recognize faces and raise the red flag on those previously captured by the data base.

He said closed circuit TV cameras are even now installed all over the city which will help Manila track those who have been eluding the law and are “wanted” by authorities.

The Manila mayor previously offered reward money for every ‘wanted’ person arrested by the police in an effort to keep the unsuspecting public safe.

He noted how dangerous it is for law-abiding individuals to be out there minding his own business unaware that someone in the community is a convicted rapist or a drug-crazed murderer who may strike again at any time.
