Good morning, The Honolulu Police Department (HPD) uses the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center's facial recognition technology system. HPD does not have its own system. Please direct this inquiry to the State of Hawaii Department of the Attorney General. Regards, Sarah

Aloha Sarah, Per your suggestion I have submitted a request to the State of Hawaii Department of the Attorney General to learn more about about the technology underlying the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center's facial recognition system. Beyond the technology itself, my original request is seeing HPD "records and materials related to the ... use of face recognition technology and related software and services." As articulated in the original request, the follow items related are requested from HPD: • Policy records: any policy directives, guidance documents, memoranda, training materials, or similar records governing the use of face recognition technology for immigration, law enforcement, or other purposes. Any memoranda of understanding between this agency and other agencies to share data, access remote systems or other forms of information sharing with external agencies. • Training records: training material governing the use, sharing, or access to any related data related to or collected by the face recognition software/technology, including the legal standard that is required before using the technology. Documents, should they exist, about training for bias in the use of facial recognition technology. • Use and function records: Materials that describe the function of the software considered or in use by this agency, including emails, handouts, PowerPoint presentations, advertisements, or specification documents. • Validation and accuracy: Records, reports, audits, and other documents sufficient to describe validation, accuracy, reliability, and policy compliance of the system. ...
