Biometrics facilitate remote identification in Pinellas County

MorphoTrak : 12 March, 2015  (Application Story)
Local police in Pinellas County now have mobile access to fingerprint records enabling biometric finger identification whilst in the field
Biometrics facilitate remote identification in Pinellas County

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office has successfully deployed MorphoTrak mobile identification that allows police officers to capture and search fingerprints against state and national FBI databases from any location. The system by MorphoTrak consists of a Morpho Maestro gateway for system communications and 65 cell phone-size MorphoIDent mobile devices for capturing fingerprints in the field.

Bill Schade, Fingerprint Records Manager for Pinellas County, commented, "Maestro is a powerful tool that enhances the benefit of the mobile devices. In the short time we have had the system, it has already had a significant effect on our ability to deliver security to our citizens and deputies."

Within the first week of deployment, the mobile system identified an unknown subject as a wanted felony suspect by searching the FBI Repository of Individuals of Special Concern (RISC) database. In addition to criminal apprehension, the mobile system makes immediate identification of lost and deceased individuals possible when no other means of identification are available.

MorphoIDent devices give deputies the ability to capture high quality fingerprints quickly and intuitively in a small package. The Maestro gateway provides the interface to statewide and national fingerprint databases, and gives the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office the ability to track and report on device usage and outcomes.

"The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office is experiencing the benefits of our mobile identification solution,"observed Celeste Thomasson, President and CEO of MorphoTrak. "The Morpho Maestro is a revolutionary tool for access to biometric data within the law enforcement community. Capture devices small enough to fit in a deputy's pocket can now be used by any agency from almost any location in the U.S. to access a vast array of criminal identities in multiple AFIS systems. Morpho Maestro's proprietary management tools and techniques make this possible."
