iTouch Biometrics announced it has improved Romeoville, Illinois police department’s booking process by replacing its previous livescan fingerprint and DC Book mugshot solutions with its Accurate-ID software solution.
The police department had previously used two separate systems for processing criminals, with one system devoted to collecting fingerprints, and a second for solely capturing mugshots.
”What was key was finding a company that could convert nine years of booking data, said Deputy Chief Ken Kroll of the Romeoville Police. ”When iTouch said that they could do it in one system that was a big selling point for us. That’s one less vendor, one less contract, one less support group.”
iTouch Biometrics was able to provide the Romeoville Police with all of the tools they required for both processes in a single system.
The company converted the department’s DC book system by collecting over 15,000 mug shots and booking records from its previous DC Book system, storing the records in the new Accurate-ID software solution.
Romeoville police can now quickly access over nine years of booking data along with their new booking records in a single cabinet.
Using Active Directory, iTouch Biometrics users are provided with remote access to booking records from their desktop computers with different levels of permissions.
The software enables Romeoville police to search historical booking and demographic data, share images with other departments and perform digital lineups all from their desks.
iTouch Biometrics also provisioned a unique type of transaction within its software to accommodate records for situations where police have recorded the demographics and mugshots of local Romeoville ordinance offenders but have chosen not to collect their fingerprints.
The police department also deployed a desktop model of the iTouch Biometrics Accurate-ID package.
Additionally, iTouch Biometrics managed to complete the project on time for more than $40,000 less than the next closest bidder.
