Facial recognition technology, or FACES, has become an increasingly important tool in law enforcement for identifying suspects and solving crimes. One important aspect of FACES is the ability to create a facial composite of a suspect. A facial composite is a visual representation of a person's face that is created using a computer program. It can be used to aid in the identification of suspects and to help generate leads in an investigation.

Creating a facial composite on our FACES software is easier than you think. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. Start by opening the FACES software on your computer.

  2. Next, select the option to create a new composite. This will open a blank template for you to work with.

  3. Begin by selecting the basic facial features such as the eyes, nose, and mouth. You can adjust the size and shape of each feature to match the suspect's face.

  4. Add details such as hairstyle, facial hair, and glasses. You can choose from a variety of options to create a realistic representation of the suspect.

  5. Once you have completed the basic facial features and added details, you can begin to fine-tune the composite. This includes adjusting the skin tone, adding wrinkles, and adjusting the lighting to match the suspect's face.

  6. When you are satisfied with the composite, you can save it and share it with other officers or investigators.

Creating a facial composite with FACES is a quick and easy process that can provide valuable leads in an investigation. The technology allows officers to create a visual representation of a suspect in a short amount of time, making it easier to identify suspects and solve crimes. With FACES, officers can take a proactive approach to identifying suspects and keeping our communities safe.

It's important to note that as with any technology, FACES is not infallible and should be used in combination with other investigation techniques. Additionally, it's important to make sure that the use of FACES is compliant with the laws, regulations and ethical standards of the jurisdiction.
