Notre Dame researchers develop facial imaging technology to help fight crime

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame researchers are working on some technology that could be very helpful to law enforcement.

They are developing a crime-fighting tool that can identify suspicious individuals at crime scenes.

It uses comparisons of face photographs, face thermograms and 3D images of a person’s face.

It can increase the detail in an image all the way down to someone's ear.

Police think it will be helpful in identifying terrorists and arsonists. Both have been known to return to the scene of the crime.
