Victoria Police adding more Morpho livescan fingerprint and face capturing stations


Morpho (Safran) has been selected by Australia’s Victoria Police to provide additional biometrics capturing capability at up to 92 police stations across metropolitan and remote locations.

“Morpho’s proven expertise in Australia played a major role in winning this new contract,” commented Tim Ferris, managing director of the local subsidiary Morpho Australasia. “We have been working closely with the Victoria Police for twelve years, and have already supplied 72 stations to record fingerprints and palmprints. By expending its fingerprint and facial identification capability, Victoria Police is once again a technology pioneer and one of the best equipped police forces in the world.”

Morpho will update biometric capture devices already in use and increase the number of one-stop livescan fingerprint, palmprint and face capturing stations. The kiosks provide significant efficiency gains by allowing police to quickly and accurately collect and verify identity information.

With this new contract, Victoria Police facial recognition capability will almost quadruple in capacity, and its fleet of fingerprinting capture equipment increases by an additional 20 stations.

In related news, Morpho recently announced that its MorphoWave desktop contactless fingerprint scanner has been certified by the FBI for meeting the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Image Quality Specifications standard.
