Abstract

Just like biometric fingerprint identification, facial identification using anthropometry and anthroposcopy can provide law enforcement agencies with a valuable tool for multiple public safety applications including medico-legal investigations. While analyzing the CCTV footage and questionable images at a crime scene, the facial identification is one of the most important task forensic scientists carry out manually during their investigation. The present communication is intended to emphasize on some essential and important issues related to accuracy and reliability in forensic research related to anthropometry and anthroposcopy of the face.
