Changzhou, Yixing, Zhenjiang, and Nanjing South are three of the train stations where the facial recognition system has been installed. Local officials said the system alerts the police if a suspect is recognized as they enter the station. In one case, a fugitive, surnamed Li, was reported to police and was captured within 10 minutes of entering Changzhou train station on July 8.

Thanks to big data and facial recognition technology, the accuracy of the system has been increasing. It has also improved the efficiency of police operations.
