Biometrics for Law Enforcement
Quickly capture high-quality biometric data for fast, accurate identity verification.
Maintain the Upper Hand With Biometrics
Law enforcement agencies not only battle criminals while protecting the public, but they must also contend with ongoing challenges like budget cuts and limited resources — all amid increases in illegal activities and evolving threats.
Biometric technologies help address these challenges. With superior biometric data capture, our tools are reliable, rugged and easy to use when enrolling, verifying and confirming a person’s identity for secure checks against criminal databases.
HID is proud to support law enforcement agencies around the world with accurate, reliable biometric systems to keep citizens safe and the country secure.
