New FRS system to help reduce child abductions

Thanks to an innovative new facial recognition system (FRS), almost 3,000 missing children have been identified by city police and efforts are under way to reunite them with their families.

The FRS was employed by the Delhi police department on a trial basis to scan the faces of 45,000 children living in children’s homes.

During its testing phase between April 6 and April 10, 2,930 kids were recognized as missing children.

The technology uses a massive database of photographs and profiles to match the facial features of any child to that of a “missing person”. If city police are given free use of the tech, it could track down thousands more children so they can be reunited with their families.

According to NDTV, children’s rights organization Bachpan Bachao Andolan is working on a proposal that will allow the Delhi police department to use the software free of charge.

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) is also campaigning for the software’s utilization.

“If such a type of software helps trace missing children and reunite them with their families, nothing can be better than this,” said Yashwant Jain, a member of NCPCR.
