Safran Identity and Security supplies facial recognition solution to the Dutch Police

Published on 17 Mar, 2017

MorphoBIS Face Expert offers advanced investigation functions with forensic image analysis and comparison tools
Safran’s biometric system provides search, analysis and matching services for fingerprints and palm prints

Safran Identity and Security, a global leader in identity and security solutions, has supplied a facial recognition solution to the National Police of the Netherlands. 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.

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.

Mission-critical capability

John Riemen, Manager of the Netherlands National Criminal Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS), calls the facial recognition system a new mission-critical capability. He stated, "It's important for the public to understand that the automated search provided by the system is only the first step in finding a match for a face in a database. Possible matches are reviewed by two trained human experts, working independently. Simply stated, our system assesses and evaluates the similarity between the probe and candidate images. Only trained human examiners can provide an expert conclusion."

Anne Bouverot, Chair and CEO of Safran Identity and Security, commented, "Safran Identity and Security is honoured to further extend the long term, trusted partnership with the National Police of the Netherlands in delivering advanced biometric tools to maximise its investigation capabilities."

What Do I Need to Know to Successfully Deploy Mobile Access?

This white paper discusses what you need to know in preparation to deploy a mobile access solution. Using a mobile device to gain access to buildings is not only about solving a particular problem; it's also about doing things better.

Confidence and education in the use of contactless applications and technologies, such as Near Field Communications (NFC) and Bluetooth, are continuously growing. In the era of mobility and cloud computing, companies are increasingly concerned about the security and protection of their physical environment. Correctly implemented, mobile access has the potential to revolutionise the way we open doors.

HID have produced this guide to mobile access configuration to explore the underlying technologies which enable mobile access and discuss what you need to know to implement mobile access control.
