Railway police officers working at railway stations in Zhengzhou, the capital of central Henan province in China, received at their disposal special smart glasses to catch criminals. With their help, policemen can identify people who are wanted by passengers. The gadget has already helped to detain several dozen offenders, among which were especially dangerous.
With the help of glasses, the suspects in various crimes, from road accidents to trafficking in persons, have already been detained. Another 26 people using fake identity cards were deprived of the opportunity to travel.
And although the glasses helped catch the criminals, not all agree with the introduction of such technologies. For example, director of Human Rights Watch Sophie Richardson, believes that Beijing should immediately stop such programs and destroy the collected data, since the authorities did not have the consent of the city’s residents.
