Turkish police track probationers with biometrics

Morpho : 30 July, 2015  (Application Story)
Prisoners released under probation in the Turkish city of Konya will be tracked using fingerprint biometrics from Morpho
Turkish police track probationers with biometrics

Through its local partner Olcsan, Morpho (Safran) has supplied biometric fingerprint identification terminals to nine police stations in the Turkish city of Konya to control people under probation. The project is expected to be expanded across the country later.

Thanks to MorphoAccess SIGMA fingerprint terminals, authorities can authenticate with complete accuracy the identity of these individuals.
Previously, the inmates released under probation had to give wet signatures, an unreliable process that was subject to possible fraud and complaints.

The complete system, in operation since the beginning of May, is based on fingerprint recognition technology. During the registration phase, the probationer’s fingerprints are captured using a MorphoSmart 1300 sensor. The inmates released under probation who were obliged to give wet signature will now go to police stations and have their fingerprints verified by Olcsan’s Biometric Identification Management System using MorphoAccess SIGMA terminals. Thus control is made electronically without the need for police supervision. The MorphoAccess SIGMA terminals can also display on their screen specific messages to the probationer as soon as they are identified (eg to inform them about their next appointment within a rehabilitation programme).

The “Probation Tracking Project”, called DESTAP (Denetimli Serbestlik Takip Projesi) in Turkish, is currently used successfully in nine selected police stations in Konya. It was deployed with the contribution of Konya Police Department, under the supervision of the Ministry of Justice.
