Each day, FaceFirst technology helps retailers catch shoplifters and organized retail criminals. We decided to create a new video series called True Stories of Face Recognition and Retail Crime that tells the stories of some of the most devious criminals we’ve helped our customers catch. Each episode is only 2-3 minutes, so go ahead and binge them all.
