THE State Government is quietly compiling a mathematical map of almost every adult's face, sharing information that allows law enforcement to track people by CCTV.
Experts said yesterday few people realised their facial features were being recorded in an RTA database of drivers licence photos that the Government has allowed both state and federal police to access.
The federal body CrimTrac has asked NSW for its database so it can be mined nationally by police using the facial recognition information contained in it.
"This agreement is an important step forward in bolstering collaboration between the United States and Australia in preparing for and responding to natural disasters," said Secretary Napolitano. "I look forward to working closely with our Australian partners to keep our citizens safe during emergencies."
