Using face recognition technologies for fast identification of suspects and efficient crime investigations

Criminal investigation

Face recognition is used by law enforcement agencies worldwide to identify suspects or find missing persons. Faces in photographs or recorded videos, as well as facial sketches/composites, can be compared to image databases of known criminals and provide investigators with the most similar faces (candidate list).

Searching through hours of video material continues to be one of the most tedious investigation tasks for law enforcement professionals. Face recognition brings a new level of search automation and efficiency to the investigative workflow.
