The ABIS system (Automatic Biometric Identification System) es un sistema de facial recognition developed by the Spanish National Police with the aim of improving citizen security and facilitating criminal investigations.
This system allows comparing a captured image in real time with a database of previously recorded images, allowing police to identify a person quickly and efficiently.
In addition, ABIS can also be used to search and track individuals wanted in relation to a crime of any kind since, in principle, databases will be used data criminals and not civilians.
The ABIS system is based on advanced facial recognition technologies that permit to compare and analyze the distinctive features of a facesuch as the distance between the eyes, the shape of the jaw, and the distance between the nose and the mouth.

These characteristics are used to generate a unique profile of an individual, which is stored in a database and can be compared with images captured in real time. All this is a great advantage when it comes to improving police performance.
The Spanish National Police and the Civil Guard will start using the ABIS facial recognition system this year. This will allow them to improve in situations such as the identification of criminal suspects, the search for missing persons and the detection of individuals wanted by the justice system.
The system will prove to be very effective in solving crimes and will help the National Police to capture many wanted criminals. However, the use of facial recognition technologies also raises significant ethical and legal concerns.
Many people fear that the use of these technologies could lead to mass surveillance and disenfranchisement. The Spanish National Police has ensured that the ABIS system only used for legitimate purposes and that applicable laws and regulations are followed.
In addition, to guarantee the privacy of citizens, the ABIS system uses advanced security measures to protect the image database and ensure that only authorized persons have access to it.
Measures have also been put in place to ensure that the captured images are not used for unauthorized purposes and that the results of the comparisons are only shared with the authorities in charge of investigating the crime.
