How are people identified from CCTV?
Retrospective facial recognition compares an image of an individual, such as someone caught on CCTV suspected of committing a crime, against a database of custody images. All police forces use the Police National Database (PND) facial search facility, as it assists them in identifying people who have committed crimes.

How do you tell if there are cameras in your house?
While not all hidden cameras produce obvious visible (or audible) signs of their presence, every camera has a lens that reflects light whether it’s on or off. You should be able to spot a camera by doing a thorough scan of the room with a light source, looking for a glint of light as it reflects off the camera sensor.
What are the rules on CCTV?
If your CCTV captures images beyond your property boundary, such as your neighbours’ property or public streets and footpaths, then your use of the system is subject to the data protection laws. This does not mean you are breaking the law. But it does mean that, as the CCTV user, you are a data controller.
Can CCTV identify faces?
Some home security cameras have facial recognition, an advanced option that lets you make a database of people who visit your house regularly. Then, when the camera sees a face, it determines whether or not it belongs to someone in your list of known faces.
