Searching the Marketplace

Courses in the FirstForward Marketplace may be found by entering simple keywords. These search terms are used to match against course titles, course descriptions, topic areas, class locations, and the name of the vendor providing the training.

You may further refine the keyword search by including special commands:

  • To match the beginning and end of a word, include * in the middle of a keyword as wildcard (e.g., crim*s)
  • To match a specific phrase, add double quotes (e.g., "in the field")
  • To require words, add + before the word or phrase (e.g., +enforcement)
  • To exclude words, add - before the word or phrase (e.g., -structure)

Except when an exact match is required, the Marketplace search will attempt to match similar words, including partial matches and some misspellings.

Course Information

Please bring a laptop or tablet to use for the hand-on portion of this class.

Facial Recognition (FR) is becoming a key part in ever-growing “tool kit” for Law Enforcement Agencies. This course will provide an in-depth overview of the current state of Facial Recognition Technology, legal aspects, and best deployment practices. It will then look to where FR is headed, showing nationwide, cloud-based databases of 18 million open-source images of LEA mugshots and known sex offenders.

Attendees will get the chance to work through real-world scenarios on Facial Recognition databases, utilizing enhancement tools with step-by-step instruction.

While you will learn about Facial Recognition technology and best deployment practices, this course will utilize Vigilant Solutions’ FaceSearch program. Attendees will see how using millions of open-source images in an established gallery complements their current local booking images. Learn how to maximize your investigative efforts by implementing FR technology and improve in almost every facet of the job, including both areas of proactive field enforcement and investigations.
