Law enforcement and biometrics

 

This report by Biometrics Research Group, Inc. provides a brief, updated overview of the market size and biometric technologies available for the law enforcement market in the United States.

In this report, Biometrics Research Group, Inc. discusses how the market size for biometric applications in the U.S. law enforcement segment continues to grow at an exponential rate. In terms of biometric technologies, automated fingerprint identification systems (AFIS) and fingerprint biometric technologies account for the greatest share of the biometrics spending in the U.S. law enforcement sector, followed by face, iris, facial, and voice recognition biometric technologies.

While fingerprint matching, palm print biometrics, facial and iris recognition are considered growth areas, the firm projects that DNA will play an increasingly important role as an emerging biometric modality used with greater regularity by law enforcement agencies in the United States.
