January 14, 2015 - 

NEC has signed a multi-year service agreement with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to provide them with its flagship multimodal biometrics identification solution.

Under the agreement terms, NEC will provide the LASD with its multimodal biometrics identification solution Integra ID 5 for their current and future identification needs.

Integra ID 5 service oriented architecture includes built-in support for various biometrics modalities including fingerprint, palmprint, face, iris, voice and DNA.

The service offerings also include NEC’s fingerprint and NeoFace facial recognition technologies.

“We are very pleased to have earned the opportunity to partner and provide the identification needs of LASD,” said Raffie Beroukhim, VP of the NEC biometrics solutions division. “We are confident that our Integra ID 5 with NeoFace technology, an integral part of NEC’s ‘Safer Cities’ platform, will enable LASD to solve even more crimes and serve the public safety and security needs of citizens of Los Angeles County for years to come.”

NEC will provide the department with an active-active disaster recovery solution located in its FBI Criminal Justice Information System-compliant data center, network and remote managed services.

The solution is compliant with various standards, such as the FBI’s latest Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification, as well as state and local agencies including California Department of Justice, Western Identification Network and FBI Next Generation Identification.

Previously reported, NEC’s Integra-ID5 multimodal biometric identification system solution was accepted by the Western Identification Network, an organization of western U.S. state and local law enforcement agencies.
