A state report is recommending restrictions on the use of Ohio's facial recognition technology, which can identify suspects through possible matches with drivers' license photos.
The report released Friday also recommends promoting the value of the technology to the public, such as its use cracking down on identity theft.
The committee said DeWine's office should create a policy to determine how long records in the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway are maintained. The panel also wants to see mandatory and standardized training for users of the gateway database.
