The government in Leon, in Guanajuato state, is aiming to create the most secure city in the world.
The country's sixth largest city has introduced scanners which can identify up to 50 people a minute without requiring them to stop and stand in front of them.
The devices, made by US biometrics firm Global Rainmakers Inc, have been installed in a range of public places including train stations, shopping centres, medical centres and banks.
The information gathered is sent to a central database that can then, in Big Brother-style, track people's movements across the city.
