FBI Wants to Prevent Citizens From Learning If They Are In Biometric Database

• wearechange.org

The FBI is one of many companies who are collecting biometric data, others include Apple, Google, Motorola, and Lenovo.

The information contained in the Next Generation Identification System does not just collect data from criminals, suspects, and detainees — but also includes data from people who are fingerprinted for jobs, licenses, naturalization, volunteer services, military services, and other methods.

The agency claims that people finding out if their information is stored in the database will "compromise" law enforcement investigations, so on Thursday, the Justice Department released their planned proposal that the database be exempt from certain provisions of the Privacy Act, Nextgov reported.

The Privacy Act requires agencies share the information they have collected on individuals with that person, but the agency claims it could compromise their "sensitive investigative technique."
