DHS/USSS/PIA-024 Facial Recognition Pilot

U.S. Secret Service (USSS or Secret Service) will operate a Facial Recognition Pilot (FRP) at the White House Complex in order to biometrically confirm the identity of volunteer USSS employees in public spaces around the complex. The FRP will seek to test USSS’s ability to verify the identities of a test population of volunteer USSS employees. Ultimately, the goal of the FRP is to identify if facial recognition technologies can be of assistance to the USSS in identifying known subjects of interest prior to initial contact with law enforcement at the White House Complex. The collection of volunteer subject data will assist USSS in testing the ability of facial recognition technology to identify known individuals and to determine if biometric technology can be incorporated into the continuously evolving security plan at the White House Complex.
