iLegal 2019: Super Recognisers in South Africa

July 2019 News

In an age where security technology is doing more and talk of reducing manpower abounds, Super Recognisers are finding a growing acceptance and showing remarkable success in many environments.

Delegates at iLegal 2019, to be held in Johannesburg on 12 September 2019, will have an opportunity to hear all about the concept of Super Recognisers, what they are, who they are and what difference they can and have made in the security surveillance field over the past few years.

Mike Neville, founder of Super Recognisers will be on hand to talk about how Super Recognisers are redefining CCTV in the UK and Europe, and how they can make a difference in Africa.

Neville will additionally discuss how Super Recognisers are being strategically employed through a shift in focus to identifying suspects using a combination of face recognition, behaviour analysis and technology. Also a question that is top of mind in terms of security operations, he will address how Super Recognisers relate and compare to automated face recognition systems.

Also, find out how super recognisers are being placed in situations where they are able to detect issues relating to banned people, suspects, and criminal behaviour at major events and sites in Europe to prevent crime – at iLegal 2019.

In short, Neville will cover the history of Super Recognisers, why they represent such a change in the capacity of CCTV, and cover some of the successes achieved over the past years.

Having retired from the Met in 2017, Neville works closely with academic partners to further develop the Super Recogniser tactic for the private sector and has developed a selection and training course aimed at non-police Super Recognisers. Neville is the only member of the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, who is an expert on Super Recognisers.
