The New York Police Department Starts Using Iris Scans on Suspects

The New York Police Department Starts Using Iris Scans on Suspects: "In a move questioned by the New York Civil Liberties Union and some of New York's top lawyers, the New York Police Department is now using machines to photograph and scan the irises of prisoners as they pass through New York Central Booking. The department claims that this new high-tech identification program is part of a failsafe measure meant to prevent escapes as suspects move through New York's complex and winding court system."
