c) If facial recognition will be activated, what is the composition of the watchlist you will match faces with i.e. who is on the watchlist.
d) How many cameras will be installed, and what and how many other security/surveillance systems will be put into place
e) Which companies manufactured the cameras, as well as names of manufacturers of any of the smart software including facial recognition
f) When the upgrade will be completed and rolled out
