Governor Cláudio Castro announced, in a press conference this Wednesday (3), that security forces vehicles in the state of Rio de Janeiro will now have cameras.

Three pieces of equipment will be installed in each car: one internal camera and two external ones, which will have license plate reading software, and another for facial recognition. The press conference that presented the system began with images of the governor being transmitted from inside one of the vehicles.

According to the government, this is a stage in the expansion of the video monitoring system, which has already been implemented in Rio. There will be almost 3 thousand PM vehicles equipped – 1.2 thousand in the first phase of the installations, according to the government. By the end of the project, there will be 5,849 thousand pieces of equipment in all police forces (Civil Police, PM, and criminal police).

“For sure [o sistema] It will help a lot to improve the work in the vehicle and help protect our police officer who will understand the situation before even leaving the vehicle. The images are powered by artificial intelligence,” said Castro, in a transmission that was a little choppy.

“Another important step in the implementation of the video surveillance system. This investment in technology offers more transparency and security to police officers on the ground”, added Colonel Luiz Henrique Marinho Pires, secretary of the PM.

There were, however, cases where people recognized by the system no longer owed anything to the Court when they were recognized by the cameras and ended up being released.
