Statewide Network of Agency Photos (SNAP)
The Statewide Network of Agency Photos (SNAP) Program is the central repository for storing the State of Michigan’s digital facial images (Front/Profile/Scars, Marks, and Tattoos) and associated data for law enforcement access. SNAP allows for the completion of digital lineups that meet the best practice standards for eye witness identification and facial recognition (FR). FR is a biometric tool that should only be utilized by staff that has been specially trained and should never be considered a form of positive identification.
The SNAP Unit can provide services in the following areas:
- Digitally compliant lineups
- Facial recognition searches
- Demographic searches
- SNAP training
- Mobile facial recognition training
