LONDON, Ohio (AP) — A state advisory panel planned Friday to continue its review of security and protocols for Ohio's law enforcement information-sharing system.

At issue is the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway, a searchable system that gives police and other investigators near-instant access to records including driver's license and vehicle registrations, the sex offender registry and the computerized criminal history at the state's Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

Since June, police have also been able to use facial recognition software to match images of possible suspects or victims with Ohio driver's license photos.

Critics called the technology's use intrusive, and Attorney General Mike DeWine appointed the panel to study whether more protocols were needed for using the software.

The group is scheduled to hold its third meeting Friday in London west of Columbus.
