Police to get access to driver's licence photos without warrant
user posted image

Authorities will soon have speedy access to photos from driver's licences, visas and passports, without seeking a warrant to hunt suspected terrorists.

Legislation will likely be passed through Queensland Parliament this week, allowing police to more quickly access facial images for non-transport-related offences to match against potential offenders.

Police intend to use the IMS as an investigative tool, but not as a form of identification in criminal prosecutions.

Queensland will pass the legislation first, ahead of next month's Commonwealth Games.

Police Minister Mark Ryan said the database was not about taking anyone's rights away, but ensuring every Queenslander and visitor's rights to stay safe were assured.

Mr Ryan said the national system would be implemented in consultation with the Australian Privacy Commissioner and it would be subject to audits by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.

"It is also important to note that the Queensland Police Service and other agencies will continue to be held accountable for the legal use of the database by external bodies such as privacy commissioners, ombudsmen and anti-corruption or integrity commissioners," he said.

Access to the truth relating to the comment by Police Minister Mark Ryan is not a secret and having relatives who are police officers. The fact is that new or renewed drivers licences in Queesland will not have the driver's gender on the licence which enables a person to falsify their facial features with make-up or other means.
It is to enable added security for honest drivers.
Anyone who has a a current drivers licence, passport or other photograph ID already have their photograph and all other personal information in the world-wide data-base.
The police have your vehicle registration number, accessing your photo isn't such a big deal!

Spot on Jonno - and the picture on your drivers licence is digital to allow facial recognition technology to track you, wherever you are in the world. We're not quite there yet but it's coming.

The software is not as good as in the movies, but if our Australian Of The Year develops the quantum computer, it's all systems go.
