Dubai airport considers installing face recognition cameras

July 7 - The two international airports in Dubai are considering the use of face recognition cameras to enhance security.


The present network of cameras will also be upgraded with the installation of the most modern software, said Brigadier Pilot Ahmad Mohammad Bin Thani, Director-General of Dubai Police’s General Department of Airport Security, at a press conference held yesterday to announce summer security preparations at Dubai International Airport.


New hi-tech cameras will be installed in Dubai and Al Maktoum international airports to ensure better security measures as 732 criminal cases have been registered this year by Dubai Police Airport Security. In 2009, there were 1,382 cases. Most of these cases are related to passport forgery.


At present, there are 3,246 cameras at Dubai International Airport and 180 cameras have been installed at Al Maktoum International Airport so far. The Al Maktoum airport will have more cameras installed by the time it is opened for passengers in March.
