If you think you have all the tools to keep him safe from the streets, think again.
The Irish Times has learned that a new report published by the Irish Council for Crime Prevention has warned parents of young children in the country about the dangers of using facial recognition software.
The report is based on a pilot study that the council carried out with the Irish government last year.
In it, it surveyed the experiences of parents who had adopted their children from the US.
It found that nearly a quarter of parents were concerned about their children getting into trouble and the majority said they were concerned that facial recognition technology would help their children get in trouble with the law.
“Children’s safety is of paramount importance to us,” said Paul O’Connor, the council’s chief executive.
“We want them to grow up with a sense of belonging and confidence in their parents.”
Mr O’Neill said the council has made the decision to stop using facial recognising technology in the UK and it would be a “huge setback” for the use of facial recognition in the Republic.
The data the council gathered includes the ages of children, the gender of their parents and whether or not the child is the legal guardian.
In one case, a mother told the council that her 14-year-old daughter had been involved in an incident where a man she had adopted from the States had been found to be carrying a knife.
“I am not in a position to tell you that my daughter is not a danger,” she said.
“There are many, many things we can do to prevent this happening to our child.
I am not one of them.”
The council says the research shows that many parents do not take the necessary precautions to protect their children.
“Parents have a choice about whether they want their child to be involved in the criminal justice system, whether they feel comfortable being out in public and interacting with other children,” said Mr O’Sullivan.
“A small percentage of parents have a fear of facial recognisers and so we are seeing a very small proportion of parents choosing to take action.”
But the council says facial recognition is a relatively new technology that has been around for a very long time.
“For a long time, facial recognition has been very, very safe, and in some cases has been the only way to detect a child in the area,” said Dr John McBride, a lecturer in computer science at the University of Technology Sydney.
“Now, that has changed, and it is quite difficult for parents to make the switch.”
Mr McBride says the technology is becoming more sophisticated.
“When you’re talking about facial recognition, you’re basically trying to recognise something, not the face,” he said.
The latest report says that facial recognizers can be installed in vehicles, houses, and on CCTV cameras.
It also warns parents to check their children’s licence and ID card when using facial scanning software.
“What we need is a system that is as safe as possible for the children and for the parent, so that the parent has a sense that their child is safe,” said Professor McBride.
“In the end, we want to make sure that parents can rely on a system of this sort that is safe, reliable and secure.”‘
It will be very hard’If facial recognition does find its way into the Republic, there is a danger that it could lead to more children being arrested in the future.
“If it does happen that it does, we have to be very, strong in saying to the parents that this is not something that we are going to support in the near future,” said Ms McBride of the Irish council.
“But the fact that it’s a new technology, we will have to make it as safe and secure as possible and we need to make that happen in the next six months.”
The latest survey is the first one commissioned by the council and the research comes at a time when the number of arrests in Ireland has risen sharply in recent years.
In September, police in the north-west of the country arrested 18 people in connection with the murder of a man.
Last year, a woman in Cork was found guilty of manslaughter after stabbing her estranged husband to death in the kitchen of his home.
The council is also asking parents to be vigilant when using the technology.
“The council does not endorse or endorse any of the research findings,” said a statement from the council.
