The iPhone goes criminal
AS IF the iPhone hasn't already been integrated into everyday life, the police in America are now using it to catch criminals!
An application for the iPhone known as MORIS (Mobile Offender Recognition and Identification System) lets officers take a photo of a suspect, upload it onto a secure network and analyse the image. The app works by using biometric information such as facial recognition software to help identify known criminals. If a match is made, the identity, photo and background information about the suspect is transmitted back to the police officer's iPhone and displayed.
Police in the US are using an iPhone app to take photos of suspects and instantly compares them with a criminal database.The app is being tested by the gang unit at Brockton police in Massachusetts, if it is a success it will be rolled out to other areas of the country.
