Welcome to SRI

It is currently estimated that there are 5.9 Million CCTV cameras in Great Britain alone, with this number expected to continue to increase in line with the quality and availability of CCTV technology.

As the number of images available increases, so does the need for skilled professionals to review the footage and identify the individuals that you are looking for. This is the service that Super Recognisers International is offering to you.

What is a Super Recogniser?

Super recognisers are people with extraordinarily good facial recognition ability. It is the extreme opposite of prosopagnosia. It is estimated that 1–2% of the population are super recognisers who can remember 80% of faces they have seen.

The average person can only remember about 20% of faces they have seen. Super Recognisers have proved to be far superior to computer recognition systems.

SRI super recognisers are trained in behavoural analysis, facial mapping, gait analysis and are academically identified by the University of Greenwich as being part of the 2% of the population

Mike Neville MCSFS

Mike Neville MCSFS is the Chief Executive Officer of Super Recognisers International Ltd and the Managing Director of Neville Forensic Recognition Ltd. He began his policing career with the Royal Military Police in 1983. He then joined the Metropolitan Police and at New Scotland Yard established himself as the Detective Chief Inspector in charge of solving crimes with CCTV and other forensic images – his systems and processes resulted in images solving more crimes than fingerprints and DNA. He also set up the world’s first “Super Recogniser Unit” using officers with fantastic, innate, face memory skills to identify offenders and link crimes by the images. As a result, he was called onto assist enquiries all over the world including the Cologne New Year’s Eve sex attacks, a murder in Australia and the Hillsborough Enquiry. In 2016, he solved a series of crimes using logo recognition software – another world first. According to one Police and Crime Commissioner, Mike has solved more crimes with CCTV than any other detective.

Having retired from the Met in 2017, Mike works closely with academic partners to further develop the Super Recogniser tactic for the private sector. He now offers his expertise to security companies, law enforcement agencies, local authorities, businesses, software developers and universities. He firmly believes that super recognisers can help to make venues safer, secure our borders and prevent crime. He is the only member of the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, who is an expert on Super Recognisers.
