FBI Is Scanning Driver’s License Images to Make Potential Matches

Steve Neavling

The FBI is scouring state databases of driver’s license photos to search for face matches of criminals, WND reports.

“A probe photo refers to the photo of the subject of an active FBI investigation that is submitted for search against a photo repository,” states the FBI’s agreement with Illinois, which is nearly identical to agreements with other states.

“The anticipated result of that search will be a photo gallery of potential matches. These potential matches (candidates) will be forwarded to the FBI, along with any associated information stored with the photo.”

The database allows the FBI to use facial recognition systems.
