Adaptive Surveillance: A Novel Approach to Facial Surveillance for CCTV Systems, Final Progress Report
National Institute of Justice (U.S.)
"We have developed a surveillance system that uses real-time face recognition technology to increase the utility of currently existing CCN-compatible surveillance software. The performance of the best existing surveillance system was dramatically improved by development of techniques for: (1) dynamic adjustment of video parameters in the region of the image containing a face and (2) tracking a face to acquire multiple images of it, across video frames. The outcome of this work is a state-of-the-art, automated facial recognition surveillance system capable of providing immense value to the law enforcement community. The automation of the attentionally-taxing duty of surveillance lowers overhead, and thus, frees up resources for performance of other tasks. Use of this system will allow law enforcement to perform surveillance duties to a level of efficiency and precision beyond that which is possible at present. Ultimately, fewer crimes may be perpetrated and arrests made on the basis of surveillance may lead to a greater probability of conviction."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
