• Facial Recognition Working Group

  • The Facial Recognition Working Group  shall review the Facial Recognition Program Best Practices Guide published by AAMVA in 2015 and update the content to reflect the most current best practice methods that should be utilized by driver license, motor vehicle and criminal justice agencies to capture, review, and share facial images; and when appropriate, investigate potential matches and pursue prosecution when fraudulent activity is discovered.
