Best Practices in Facial Recognition

facialPosted by Tyler Wood, Operations Manager at Crime Tech Solutions.

As a crime analyst or investigator, you or someone you know are often asked to compare images (typically faces) to determine if they match. You may or may not have facial recognition software, but those programs tend to lead to more false positives than anything else.  What’s an analyst to do? Good question…

Crime Tech Solutions – Your Source for Investigation Software – recommends this Facial Identification Best Practices Guideline available from the Facial Identification Scientific Working Group (FISWG). It’s completely free and can be downloaded for printing or ongoing reference.

We hope you find this resource helpful!
