COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's attorney general is convening group of judges, prosecutors and others to study whether the state should have additional protocols in place for law enforcement officers using facial recognition technology.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says that since June, local and state law enforcement officers could use the facial recognition software to match images of possible suspects or victims with their driver's license photos. He says it's been used almost 2,700 times.

DeWine, a Republican, told reporters on Monday that the working group will make recommendations to him in 60 days.

His comments come after The Cincinnati Enquirer first reported the use of the facial recognition software.

DeWine's Democratic challenger says in a statement that it's far too late for working group review. David Pepper also calls the technology's use intrusive.
