October 2, 2015 - 

3M demonstrated its newest, mobile credential applications at the BORDERPOL North America meeting held last month in Washington, D.C.

BORDERPOL bills itself as the only international nonprofit organization whose mission is to support and engage governments and international organizations worldwide to actively promote the facilitation of safe and secure legitimate international travel of people across air, land and sea borders while curtailing terrorists and organized crime, including human and sex trafficking. The tenets of BORDERPOL’s mission are grounded in the humane treatment of persons, regional and international cooperation, law and criminal justice, minimum international border control and security standards, information-sharing and secure communication with appropriate data protection. The organization held its first North American event, in which firms like 3M showed of their products and services.

At the event, 3M demonstrated its tablet-based system that works in conjunction with its full page readers. 3M’s full-page readers use multiple wavelength illumination, including visible IR, UV, laminate and RFID technology, to read and authenticate multiple document types quickly, easily and accurately.

3M provides clients across law enforcement, commercial security and civil ID markets a range of innovative public security solutions including biometrics, electronic monitoring, domestic violence deterrence, secure document solutions, automated license plate recognition and electronic tolling.

At the BORDERPOL meeting, 3M demonstrated the capacity of its products to be also used to combat terror threats. BORDERPOL’s event examined means to curtail terrorist travel, in conjunction with border government representatives from around the world, along with the private sector and major international organizations.

The authentication technology demonstrated by 3M facilitates the check of travel documents, in order to determine whether the documents are genuine or counterfeit. 3M also previewed new mobile identification check software that was embedded on a tablet, along with an IP-based scanner.
