Morpho Deploys Next Generation Identification System in Sweden

Paris, July 30, 2012

Morpho (Safran group) today announced the first European deployment of MorphoBIS, its next generation identification system, to the Swedish National Police Board (Rikspolisstyrelsen). This Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) is used for investigation, identification and verification in law enforcement applications.

Already deployed to police services in the United States and Canada, this AFIS provides unrivalled speed and accuracy, allowing more crimes to be solved more quickly.

The system is compliant with the European Union's Prüm Regulation, which allows the police forces of the 30 signatory countries to compare and exchange data more easily.

The Swedish National Police Board is a long-term customer of Morpho. By choosing the company to upgrade their AFIS, Sweden has renewed their trust in Morpho's advanced biometric solutions.
