TASHKENT -- Police in Tashkent are testing computer tablets capable of identifying suspects on the spot, Sputnik Uzbekistan reported Thursday (November 2).

Under the pilot programme, dozens of Tashkent police officers have received the tablets, which use specialised facial recognition and fingerprint software.

The machines "allow [the identification of] a person in few minutes," said police Lt. Col. Aziz Sultonov.

Tashkent participants in the pilot programme are determining which tablets serve their needs best, said Tashkent deputy police chief Doniyor Tashkhojayev.

Uzbekistani firms will develop the software for the tablets, he said.
