Law Enforcement

Build investigative leads and reduce crime

All too often an egregious crime occurs and nothing is available to identify the perpetrator except a surveillance image. Whether it is physical or sexual violence, exploitation of the elderly, stolen credit cards, or countless other offenses that adversely impact society, automated face recognition is often the best resource available to help solve the crime.

Ethical FR

Rank One knows the use of face recognition technology in law enforcement is a sensitive issue. We all are often reminded of the rise in authoritarian states, or biases in the U.S. criminal justice system, and Rank One is mindful of law enforcement’s difficult task in walking the line between saving lives and harming them. Our team has been involved in critical concerns around best practices in forensic facial identification for the last decade. We have worked alongside cutting-edge local law enforcement agencies, as well as federal agencies tasked with incorporating automated facial recognition capabilities for the first time. Our executives published the first scientific article that ushered in awareness of the mis-balances in accuracy between different races, genders, and age groups. We have worked alongside facial examiners and those who develop facial examiner training programs. We have advised the FBI on how their technology could be improved in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon Bombings. Rank One is highly selective of who we support and it is uplifting to learn about the lives we have helped with our technology.
