Amazon Doubles Down on Ring Partnerships With Law Enforcement 

The company’s top hardware executive told WIRED he’s “proud” of the controversial program and hinted at a future with more facial recognition.

Ring, the home security company Amazon bought in 2018, has been criticized by more than 30 civil rights organizations for arranging secretive deals with hundreds of police departments across the country. In a letter sent in September, senator Edward Markey (D-Mass.), said the partnerships “could easily create a surveillance network that places dangerous burdens on people of color and feeds racial anxieties in local communities.” But those concerns are not changing Amazon’s approach to selling Ring’s products—in fact, quite the opposite.
