MorphoTrak Deploys Morpho Biometric Identification System at NYPD

Alexandria, Va., September 18, 2012

Morpho (Safran group), the leading provider of biometric technology, is proud to announce that its US subsidiary, MorphoTrak has successfully deployed MorphoBIS, its automated Biometric Identification System, for the New York City Police Department (NYPD).

MorphoBIS is Morpho's next generation biometric identification system and the product of Morpho's extensive investment in R&D. NYPD's new system handles ten-print and latent matching, including lights–out processing with unrivalled speed and accuracy, matching of palm prints and mobile two-finger searches. Lights–out processing finds potential hits for verification by NYPD fingerprint technicians.

"Over the last 15-plus years, MorphoTrak has proudly helped America's largest municipal police force ensure the safety of its citizens," said Daniel Vassy, President and CEO of MorphoTrak. "We look forward to serving NYPD well into the future."

As the supplier of the biometric identification systems in seven nearby states, MorphoTrak is in a unique position to facilitate future interoperability where eastern seaboard states could cross search each other's systems in the future leading to more identifications and convictions.

Morpho's biometric matching technology is ranked #1 by NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) for lights-out latent fingerprint accuracy, providing agencies with the most cost-effective solution to process large numbers of latent searches while allowing their experts to focus on the most critical cases.
