Use of biometric facial detection with surveillance cameras

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Walsall Academy,

Under the Freedom of Information Act please could you response to the below request for information:

Ref: Article - http://4a54f0271b66873b1ef4-ddc094ae70b2...

Quote from above article: “Administrators now seamlessly manage the Academy’s hybrid surveillance system using Avigilon Control Center Enterprise NVMS with High-Definition Stream™ Management and installed Avigilon HD cameras to monitor main entrances and parking lots for reliable license plate recognition, and to cover corridors, cloak rooms, and technology suites for greater image detail and facial recognition.”

1) Does the school use a facial recognition system with the surveillance cameras on school premises?

I appreciate that schools are busy and I am grateful for your time on this. If you are not fully certain of what it is I am asking then I look forward to contact from you as soon as possible to clarify what it is I am requesting in order to meet your obligations under the law. I look forward to hearing from you in the time allowed within the Act.

Yours faithfully,

Pippa King

Enquiries, Walsall City Academy
