BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)– United States Customs and Border Protection is using new technology at the Peace Bridge.
It’s called ‘biometric facial comparison technology.’
Officials say when a person arrives at the border, they will pause for a photo.
That photo will be compared to their passport or visa identification.
U.S. customs says the technology has a 97% success rate.
U.S. citizens can opt-out of the process. Customs officials say it is voluntary.
