Local law enforcement organizations across the U.S. are turning to biometrics as a convenient, rapid and accurate way of improving daily operations. And Iris ID’s iris-recognition technology is being chosen more often as it offers the highest available accuracy with contactless operation, an essential consideration in the COVID-19 era.

Iris ID’s iCAM R100, a high-speed iris recognition camera module, integrates with law enforcement’s modular key management cabinets and electronic asset lockers used to store keys, weapons, evidence, and other property safely. With the iCAM R100 in place, only authorized personnel may access these assets, eliminating in many cases a need for PINs, access control cards and RFID fobs.

Law enforcement agencies add the iCAM R100 to suspect intake procedures to definitively establish who is being booked and later released from jail or transported to a court or other facilities. Submitting a suspect’s iris patterns to state and federal criminal databases enables the local agency to learn if the person has outstanding warrants in other locations. The authentication process is quick and convenient, taking only about a second to complete.

There is no worry about mistakes as no two people, including identical twins, share the same iris patterns. Iris-based biometric technology is unaffected by dirt, grease, gloves, facial hair, hats, glasses and other factors that reduce the accuracy of fingerprint and facial recognition systems. And the ICAM R-100, with built-in liveness detection, cannot be spoofed by photographs or models of a person’s eyes.

The Iris ID iCAM R100 adds a valuable dimension to local law enforcement. Many agencies, including the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and York County (Penn.) Sheriff’s Office, use our technology.

To see a demonstration of iCAM R100, visit us at the National Sheriff’s Association’s National Conference and Exhibition June 22-24 at the Phoenix Convention Center, booth #114.
