FaceFirst Expands Its Existing Facial Recognition Services in Panama Airport


FaceFirst facial recognition has provided the following benefits for Panamanian national security: Enabled the capture of multiple Interpol suspects; Enabled the ongoing tracking and captures of multiple regional and nationally wanted persons; Enabled the geo-fencing of authorized people throughout the facility.

These capabilities are especially vital due to the increasingly high volume of traffic through Tocumen International Airport in Panama, reaching approximately 7.8 million people in 2013 alone and nearly doubling in size the last five years.

"The FaceFirst™ facial recognition system installed at Tocumen is capable of detecting 30 people per day who have a police record or who are wanted by Interpol, and thus are not allowed to enter the country," explained Jose Mulino, Panama’s Minister of Public Security.

"We are proud to be a part of this $936 million investment in the expansion of Tocumen International Airport," says FaceFirst CEO, Joe Rosenkratz. "The inclusion of our technology in this expansion is a testament to its beneficial influence on heightening border security and safety within nations."

The ability to detect wanted persons and allow airport security to extract them with minimal disturbance to other travelers has proven the value of FaceFirst™ and need in the newest terminal at the Tocumen airport.

FaceFirst™ is a leading facial recognition supplier to international airports, law enforcement, retail, gaming, and commercial customers around the world.
