Orange County, California has selected Morpho's US subsidiary, MorphoTrak, to provide MorphoBIS, its next generation Biometric Identification System, for the county’s new biometric identification system.
Housed in the Orange County Crime Lab, MorphoBIS will provide real-time identification of suspects and criminals with unrivalled accuracy and enhanced productivity as more crimes are solved more quickly. MorphoBIS will fully integrate fingerprints and palm prints for high-volume searches submitted by agencies and jurisdictions countywide.
The Orange County Crime Lab is one of the largest agencies of its kind in the world, providing identification services to multiple agencies and jurisdictions in the county including more than twenty City Police Departments, the Sheriff-Coroner, the District Attorney, as well as the Probation Dept., Juvenile Hall, Cal State University Fullerton Police, and University of California Irvine Police.
“The selection of MorphoBIS helps us meet one of our core missions, that of Vigilance in safeguarding our community,” said Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens. “Our crime lab will be able to solve more crimes, more efficiently with this key crime-solving tool.”
“The MorphoBIS solution represented the best-value identification solution for the county,” said Daniel Vassy, President and CEO of MorphoTrak. “We are excited to create a strong, lasting partnership with Orange County, starting with the full conversion of existing biometric data.”
As the supplier of biometric algorithms to the FBI, Morpho’s biometric matching technology is ranked #1 by NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) for lights-out latent fingerprint accuracy, providing agencies with the most cost-effective solution to process large numbers of latent searches while allowing their experts to focus on the most critical cases.
