Man jailed after being arrested during facial recognition trial in Romford

A man who was arrested in Romford during a trial of facial recognition technology has been jailed for 11 weeks.

Scott Russell, 35, was one of eight people detained following last Thursday’s deployment in South Street.

He was one of three people arrested as a direct result of the trial, with the other five were “proactive arrests as part of the wider operation” the Met Police said.

Russell was charged with breaching a non-molestation order and sentenced to 11 weeks’ imprisonment.

Uniformed officers were in South Street, handing out information leaflets about the technology’s trial.

Police have also released information on some of the other people who were arrested during the trial.

A 28-year-old man, who was arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment and kidnapping, has been released with no further action.

A 17-year-old boy has been released under investigation, having been arrested on suspicion of discharging a firearm.

Two 14-year-old boys, who were arrested on suspicion of robbery have also been released under investigation.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “The two-day deployment was also due to continue on Friday (1 February) however, due to adverse weather forecasts, the trial was rescheduled.

“Details about the next deployment will be publicised proactively in the near future.”
