NZ Police have been quietly setting up a $9m facial recognition system which can identify people from CCTV feed

I heard the other day, Judith Collins on radio demanding a review, raising the alarm on privacy blah blah blah. Be assured, if Nats were the govt/corporation Judith would be quietly ushering in $9 million worth of the exact same thing seeing as we have a shadow govt/corp and all. And … Adern would be parroting what Collins is saying right now. It’s all farcical and many of us see right through it. All globalist puppets, and Collins posing as opposition. It is all created that way to make you think you have a choice every three years. EWR

Police have been quietly setting up a $9 million facial recognition system that can take a live feed from CCTV cameras and identify people from it.

This would push New Zealand into new territory for tracking citizens.

It will be run by a non-police contractor – US firm Dataworks Plus – and collect 15,000 facial images a year, with that expected to expand up to 10-fold.

Some of this information is contained in an Official Information Act (OIA) response police provided to Stuff last year, but tried to withhold from RNZ last week, until a complaint was made to the Ombudsman.

RNZ made inquiries with other agencies after revealing that the Internal Affairs Department has been – quietly, too – setting up a $20m passport processing system.

1080 threat suspects shocked to discover their house was bugged

From the Nelson Mail

A Golden Bay couple suing police for being wrongly targeted in a 1080 blackmail investigation have been shocked to discover their home was bugged.

Rolf and Ute Kleine, who run teahouse and bakery Takaka Infusion, obtained police documents through their lawyer in November that reveal their house was bugged with a surveillance device 20 days prior to a police search of their home in 2015.

The Kleines have lodged a statement of claim with the Nelson High Court and are suing police next year.

They say both searches and their warrant applications were unlawful and illegal, and they had been inaccurately profiled by police seeking those responsible for a threat to Fonterra to put 1080 pesticide into baby milk formula.

In one of the police documents the couple obtained, Senior Sergeant Aaron Pascoe wrote that “very little” conversation could be picked up through the surveillance device planted in their home.

“I believe that the lack of evidence to date from the Surveillance Device warrant is either due to the poor quality…, or an indication that Rolf Kleine has acted alone (so he has not spoken to his wife about what he has done), or both,” he wrote.

Rolf Kleine said the whole thing “keeps getting worse and worse”.

“Police didn’t find anything, not even a little bit against us, and they just kept going and kept going with no evidence at all,” he said.

Ute Kleine said the couple used to joke that police might have bugged their home, but when it was revealed they really had, they were left reeling again.

“It’s different if it’s your phone than if it’s really your private room, and they can listen to everything you say and do,” she said.

“When I am at home, sometimes I have this feeling, ‘is there somebody listening to me?’ It’s not a good feeling at all. Other times I wonder how many times did they actually enter our house; it must have been at least three times.”

White collar crime ‘rampant’ as nearly 900 fraud complaints go uninvestigated

From stuff.co.nz

Businesses are spending thousands of dollars on private investigators to probe white collar crime because police won’t touch fraud cases unless they are “gold plated”, sources say.

Figures released under the Official Information Act show that as at July 28, there were 888 files where a possible fraud or deception offence had been committed, but was yet to be assigned for investigation.

One business owner who detected an alleged theft by an employee was told by police they did not have resources to initiate a prosecution.

Police Association president Chris Cahill said the number of fraud files yet to be assigned was a “total reflection” of the lack of resources and overload of work shouldered by the police’s investigative units.
