    Huntington Park Has a Robocop 

    [dropcap size=big]H[/dropcap]P RoboCop was introduced last week by the Huntington Park Police Department. It is a surveillance robot equipped with several 360-degree high-definition cameras that record and feed live video to the HP Police Department.

    The robot has been seen rolling around Salt Lake Park for a few weeks now.

    The police department is calling it “an autonomous data machine” which basically means it’s out there collecting visual data. 

    With the growth of facial recognition technology and data mining in law enforcement, is hard to say what the police are going to do with all that video or “data.”
