TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Officials in New Jersey are set to announce the first wave of indictments that resulted from a program that detects when people use false identities to obtain driver's licenses.
State Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa and Motor Vehicle Commission Chairman Raymond Martinez will also demonstrate how the technology works Tuesday.
"Operation Facial Scrub" uses facial recognition technology at MVC locations that detects false identities.
Individuals are caught if a photo on an existing New Jersey driver's license is associated with another name in the system when they attempt to obtain another license.
MVC officials say the program was implemented after the Sept. 11 attacks to make it harder for people to obtain fraudulent documents and heighten security.
