Morpho has deployed MorphoBIS at the Calgary and Edmonton police for automated fingerprint identification during investigatory work
Automatic Fingerprint Identification System In Use By Canadian Police

Morpho (Safran group) has announced the first deployment of MorphoBIS, its next generation biometric identification system, in Canada to both the Calgary Police Service and the Edmonton Police Service. This Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) is an innovative solution for investigation, identification and verification in law enforcement applications.


The Calgary and Edmonton Police Services realized that a new biometric solution was required to meet the demand for rapid paperless responses, real-time identification, and biometric data exchanges. After thorough competitive evaluation, including accuracy testing and cost of ownership comparisons, Morpho’s solution was selected.


Achieved shortly after the merger of Morpho and Printrak*, MorphoBIS is the leading edge of AFIS technology incorporating the best of their two technologies. MorphoBIS enables real-time identification of suspects and criminals. With its fused algorithms, workflows and features, this crime-solving tool fully integrates fingerprints and palm prints. Its intuitive and customizable workspace, robust architecture and large database meet the specific needs of criminal justice agencies. The results are unrivalled accuracy and enhanced productivity as more crimes are solved more quickly.


“During the rigorous benchmark, we were impressed with the MorphoBIS solution and are very happy to be partnering with them”, stated Superintendent Ken Marchant, Calgary Police Service. “Morpho has equipped us with the most advanced biometrics technology available today.”


“The success of MorphoBIS results from the combination of cutting-edge biometric technologies, synergies between our research and development teams and the contribution of our customers worldwide who challenge us to continually innovate”, said Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Morpho .


MorphoBIS is compliant with international standards and deploys biometric matching technology ranked #1 by NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) for latent fingerprint accuracy.
