Never arrested? Michigan State Police still likely has your photo in its database

If you’ve never been arrested, it’s highly unlikely your fingerprints are on file with the Michigan State Police.

But if you’ve ever gotten a Michigan driver’s license or a state ID card, it’s almost certain the State Police has your mug shot.

The MSP photo database may even contain your Facebook profile photo or another social media image, if police obtained that photo in connection with a criminal investigation, even if you were never charged.

There are only about 8 million adults in Michigan, but there are nearly 50 million facial images in the MSP’s Statewide Network of Agency Photos (SNAP), with 2.7 million photos added to the database last year alone.
