    Just wondering what percentage of suspects get successfully identified as a result of this feature? Most of these pictures look like they were taken with a potato! Also is it such a great idea to show criminals just how crap some of these systems are?

    For example:

    No ideas on percentages but it seems they are handy and do work.

    The quality is shocking with some, and it makes you wonder if its a case of old systems not upgraded as I cant imagine new systems are put in place that low resolution.

    The thing is the guy in the picture is my sort of height, build and like me has short dark hair. Luckily the quality is so terrible that I can still shop in Rhosddu Spar! :D

    If this feature does work then great, I’m glad to hear it. We have a system at work which is very good when you play back uncompressed video footage but captured stills are pretty poor. I have been looking at this feature on the site over the past few months & some of these have been so bad that all I could see them doing was lulling any would be criminals into a false sense of security.

    I can remember one that was clearly a picture of an image on a monitor! :)
