Facial recognition helps Northern Territory police fight crime “The system deployed by the NT police allows personnel to search through their database of images and match against CCTV footage and photos taken from body-worn camera videos, drones and mobile phones. To date, 100,000 images have been copied into the system database from existing Police information holdings. Within the trial period, NeoFace Reveal assisted NT police in identifying over 300 people, not exclusive to criminal suspects. One identified person included an unconscious man admitted to the Royal Darwin Hospital after having been seriously assaulted.”
