According to Motherboard, company Taser International plans on having footage recorded by a police officer's bodycam sent back for facial recognition analysis, allowing them to know if anyone that has walked by is connected to an active warrant.

“With body cameras, that entire structure is completely gone,” Garvie said. “Instead of having a particularized interaction—again, in the future, assuming the technological capabilities are there—this is not particularized at all. It’s essentially running a search on everybody walking past a given officer on his patrol. There’s no notice given to these people, and there’s certainly no consent. And there’s no police interaction even in place. No probable cause for a search.”

She continued: “All of a sudden, the simple act of walking past a police officer becomes a law enforcement interaction.”
