The purpose of this study was to apply face recognition of the criminal face detection, which this system implemented Eigen face to analyze face details in facial comparison database. The data used in system assessment of efficiency and developed software. The set of images used in this analysis comprised 30 images divided into 3 groups, each group contained 10 images. The results were as follow; data set 1 consisted of 10 images using image resolution of 100x100 pixel, 9 images were accurately accurate with 90% precision; data set 2 consisted of 10 images using image resolution of 150x150 pixel, 8 images were accurate with 80% precision; data set 3 consisted of 10 images using image resolution of 200x200 pixel, 7 images were accurate with 70% precision. The mean of system was 80% considered as good efficiency. Overall, the developed system had good efficiency. The system considered as quite precise and suitable for application in criminal face detection and can be used for further development.
