It's possible to recover incomplete pics by data fragments that don't have hidden directory entries anymore. Recovery software usually just recovers directory entries, likely by changing a delete flag and similar. Police likely doesn't do this with a hex editor, they likely have software that helps doing this. Such software also does math to revert some graphic effects that were used to blur faces or text on a photos.
