According to Reuters, Dubai will be equipping its detectives with Google Glass sporting facial recognition technology. The device would keep the officer constantly connected with a database of wanted people and warn them when a suspect was "recognized" based on their face print.
The gadget would be used in a first phase to combat traffic violations and track vehicles suspected of involvement in motoring offences. A second phase would see the technology rolled out to detectives, the spokesman said.
The U.S. Internet company said in a blogpost in May that anyone in the United States could buy the gadget for $1,500.
