New NightThief Forensic Imaging Technology Delivers Smarter Investigations and Safer Communities

FRP Forensic Imaging’s new image enhancement and reconstruction technology means poor quality images are no longer safe places for criminals to hide.

​INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA – November 20, 2013 - Philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein said, “A picture is a fact.” For law enforcement professionals, a picture or video often contains the complete visual DNA of a crime – and that’s today’s reality. Identifying players and crime scenes quickly and accurately can mean the difference between safe case resolutions and cold cases. Unfortunately, most criminals don’t pose for security cameras or commit crimes where conditions and lighting are perfect. They also understand witnesses are poor photographers when confronted with chaos or violence. Because of these and other realities, experts agree that less than three-percent of all crime-related images provide investigative value. However, this doesn’t diminish the critical role images play in today’s investigations – it simply underscores the need for smarter technology capable of revealing the stories poor quality images and surveillance videos have to tell.

NightThief™ is a powerful new forensic imaging system by FRP Forensic Imaging™ that delivers unequaled clarity, restoration, and enhancement capabilities to crime-related images.
