newsCO.com.au–Event group grilled on WA terror security

February 14, 2018

Visitors to Perth’s new Optus Stadium could be monitored by the same hi-tech facial recognition cameras used during the Sydney Ashes cricket Test, a parliamentary inquiry has heard.

VenuesWest, which manages some of WA’s biggest entertainment venues, has considered using facial recognition technology at the stadium as part of a broader security plan to protect event-goers from a possible terror attack.

“We have the technical capability to do that at Optus Stadium, it would just take some software and a few little changes,” chief executive David Etherton told the inquiry on Wednesday.
