branded suspects

The Metropolitan Police are mulling over technology that is capable of identifying branded logos on clothing automatically, believing that such technology will be able to make their job easier when they’re trying to track down suspects wearing distinctive clothes – an exercise that requires hours when performing a manual scan of video footage. Currently, the technology is already used to identify company logos in TV broadcasts of sporting events automatically, so it makes perfect sense for the police and local authorities to court this idea. Guess criminals and convicts would do well to dress as shabbily as possible instead of walking around in a Gucci jacket and a pair of Versace sunglasses. To many, it might come as a shocker that the cameras have enough definition to read a logo (!)
