“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.”

Nick Ross, Crimewatch and Jill Dando Institute
