Auxiliary Force of Malaysian Police integrates facial recognition technology with body-worn cameras

Auxiliary Force of Malaysian Police integrates facial recognition technology with body-worn cameras

Auxiliary Force Sdn Bhd (AFSB), a member of Royal Malaysia
Police Cooperative Bhd., has become the first security force in the country to integrate
body-worn cameras with facial recognition technology.

AFSB was established on 16th March 2015 with its main
responsibility to administer and manage Polis Bantuan of the
Royal Malaysia Police Cooperative Berhad. In addition, the services of AFSB are
utilized by private sector entities such as, such as I-City, ERM, MIC, Hatten
Group and others.

AFSB is also responsible for enhancing knowledge, skills and
ability of Polis Bantuan personnel and it offers the Polis Bantuan Foundation
Course of Excellence. Currently, AFSB monitors and manages the accreditation of
private bodyguards in Malaysia.

AFSB is working with YITU Technology (YITU), a pioneer in Artificial
Intelligence (AI) research and innovation, for this initiative to transform and
augment Malaysia’s public safety and law enforcement efforts.

AFSB is using the facial recognition technology to allow
officers to review captured video footage to positively identify persons of
interest post-event. The objective is to enhance the way auxiliary police
safeguard the community, infrastructure and assets.

Implemented since February 2018, the body-worn cameras are
currently in use by auxiliary police officers of AFSB at various critical
infrastructure. Going forward, there are plans to expand the roll-out to more
locations across Malaysia in the near future.

YITU is working with its system integration partner in
Malaysia, Build Technology Converge, to deploy the body-worn camera systems.

Dato’ Rosmadi Bin Ghazali, CEO of Auxiliary Force Sdn Bhd
said, “AFSB is committed to bring
constant innovation and forward thinking to the security landscape in Malaysia.
This is a significant step forward for us as we leverage artificial
intelligence to increase public safety and security. Looking ahead, AFSB also intends to expand
the capabilities of our body-worn camera system to include real-time facial
recognition and instant alerts to the presence of persons of interest from
criminal watchlists.”

YITU's facial recognition solutions are being used for
security at Chinese tourist locations including ports, and public spaces with
safety requirements.

"AFSB leads the
way in introducing new security technologies to transform the security
landscape in Malaysia,” said Lance Wang, YITU Technology’s General
Manager of Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Macau. “We are committed to supporting AFSB in their journey to strengthen public
security and to become a leading player in the security industry. Our work with
AFSB builds on our joint belief that AI technologies will help bring about
safer and more secure communities in Malaysia," Wang added.

YITU’s algorithm was ranked first in the Face Recognition
Vendor Test (FVRT)
organised by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2017.
It also won the face identification accuracy segment of the Face Recognition
Prize Challenge, hosted by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity
(IARPA) in the United States.

The company also opened its first international office in
Singapore in January this year to bring its facial recognition and intelligent
business solutions to the Southeast Asian, Hong Kong, Macau as well as Oceania
