“Excellent technology for fighting crime, reducing bureaucracy and saving time.”

Commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan Howe, Metropolitan Police Service


“We were greatly impressed with how Facewatch achieves the capture and provision of CCTV evidence to the police. It is apparent how this has had an impact on the prevention of crime and has great potential in further tackling offending. Facewatch really involves harnessing the technology's potential, for the benefit of the victims of crime, and for the effective investigation and prosecution of offences on their behalf.”

Alison Saunders, Chief Crown Prosecutor, CPS London


“Facewatch is fundamentally to me about reducing crime. In my former role in The Metropolitan Police Facewatch not only helped solve crime and identify offenders, it also saved valuable police resources as business were able to complete a full evidential package and report the crime online. Having recently moved into the hotel sector Facewatch is a fantastic system from a service recovery perspective. If a guest is unfortunate enough to have their bag stolen whilst staying in London the crime can be reported and reference number obtained without the guest having to leave the hotel. I fully endorse Facewatch and think it is a product that can be used not just in London and the UK but globally across the world.”

Director of Security, The Savoy Hotel
