Law enforcement agencies increasingly deploy biometrics to better protect the communities they serve. The trend gained steam following a late 2019 FBI recommendation that public and private organizations add biometric technology as part of a multi-factor process for accurate ID verification.
Learn from federal and local law enforcement experts how biometrics are used:
- To positively identify people during processes such as book-and-release and parolee check-in
- For verifying suspect identification in the field using wireless-enabled, handheld biometric readers
- To better protect access to law enforcement buildings, as well as lockers storing keys, weapons and evidence
Many law enforcement organizations add iris-based recognition systems as their biometric of choice. Iris-based solutions are known for their convenience, speed and accuracy and are ideal for use during the COVID-19 pandemic as the contactless technology works with personal protective equipment such as gloves, masks and goggles.
Also, learn from Iris ID, the provider of platforms authenticating the identities of millions of people daily, what sets iris recognition apart from other biometrics and more about how and where the technology is being used.
