The nationwide system, which includes workstations for facial search, comparison and analysis was recently launched at the National Forensic Service Centre. Dutch police officers can now submit a facial image for search against their databases and save precious time.
This facial recognition system is an extension of the biometric services that have been successfully delivered over many years by Safran Identity & Security in the Netherlands.
The original system provides search, analysis and matching services for fingerprints and palm prints.
The new facial recognition system delivers two key capabilities:
- MorphoBIS Face Expert offers advanced investigation functions with forensic image analysis and comparison tools.
- MorphoBIS Face Detective allows investigators to rapidly search for criminal portrait images and assemble photo line-ups for fast analysis.
Both programs accept multiple image file formats for maximum leveraging of available images in searches.
