Live facial recognition

LFR is a real-time deployment of facial recognition technology, which compares a live camera feed (or multiple feeds) of faces against a predetermined watchlist, in order to locate persons of interest by generating an alert when a possible match is found.

This module provides guidance for the overt deployment of live facial recognition (LFR) technology to locate persons on a watchlist.
