Automatic fingerprint identification for Zambia

Morpho : 01 December, 2015  (Application Story)
The police service in Zambia is transferring its existing fingerprint files to electronic format and introducing automated fingerprint identification
Automatic fingerprint identification for Zambia

Morpho (Safran) has signed a contract with Zambia Police Service for the supply and deployment of its latest AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System) platform, MorphoBIS. Morpho will also provide live capture enrollment stations and mobile fingerprinting devices at provincial headquarters across Zambia.

In order to enable it to be operational in the shortest possible time, the Zambian Police Service and Morpho will scan the existing paper fingerprint forms and their associated demographic information into electronic format as part of the project. Additionally, Morpho will provide comprehensive training, warranty and maintenance services for 5 years after the system is deployed.

The Inspector General of Police for the Zambian Police Service, Stella Libongani, said: “In line with our modernization program, the implementation of the Automated Fingerprint Identification System will lead to improved service delivery to the citizens of Zambia. Not only will our investigators be empowered by the use of the latest technologies offered by the system but the ability to decentralize the services to all regions in Zambia which will dramatically improve turnaround times.”

Morpho has delivered customised products to 450 government agencies in 100 countries. In the Sub-Saharan African region, Morpho has successfully implemented similar solutions for the South African Police Service, the Botswana Police Service and the Policia de Investigação Criminal (Criminal Investigation Department ) in Mozambique. At the beginning of 2015, Morpho delivered a rapid DNA instrument to the Zambian Police Service, the first machine of its kind to be delivered by Morpho on the African continent.

Paul Jeremias, Managing Director for Morpho South Africa, commented: “Morpho prides itself on furnishing systems which support African police agencies. We are delighted to begin a new partnership with the Zambian Police Service.”
