I Would Have Thought,

that with a population of 1.4 billion and counting, 

that was the latest figure for China in 2018, your face would not stand out in the crowd,

 how wrong you would be! China’s police force is ahead of the game when it comes to finding criminals in the general population, they have got some of the most advanced facial recognition surveillance in the world, with more than 170 million cameras installed around the country, 

in a recent demonstration, a BBC reporter’s headshot was uploaded into the system to show just how quickly the cops could find him in a city of 4.3 million, it took seven minutes! what a boon for law abiding citizens, when the police can apprehend criminals so quickly, with the spate of knife related crimes starting to run rampant around the world, what a great tool in the police's toolbox.
