ImageWare and Laxton partner on multi-modal biometrics in the field for law enforcement

Laxton Group and ImageWare Systems have partnered to provide law enforcement with a complete biometric identity solution for use in the field, according to a joint announcement.

The companies will integrate ImageWare’s software with the Chameleon line of devices, and Laxton becomes an approved ImageWare reseller under the agreement. ImagWare will provide GoVerifyID, QuickCapture, and QuickID to enable officers in the field to use Chameleon devices as fully mobile booking stations, according to the announcement. Law enforcement officers can use the Chameleon to capture flat, rolled, or ten-print fingerprints, SMT (scars, marks, and tattoos), face, and iris biometrics for fast comparison to a central database.

Laxton also recently announced the integration of a SecuGen fingerprint sensor into its Chameleon multimodal biometric tablet.

“For decades, ImageWare has been a pioneer in providing worldwide Law Enforcement agencies with the latest, most advanced solutions in the market,” said Jim Miller, ImageWare Systems’ Chairman and CEO. “Besides having a strong new agency reseller in Asia-Pacific, we are proud to offer, alongside Laxton, a complete hardware and software solution for the modern police force.”

The integration allows officers to conduct suspect identification in the field, rather than after escorting suspects to a police station, and can help reduce the time required for bookings, investigation, and any other biometric requirements, the companies say.

“By combining ImageWare’s Digital Identify Platform and SaaS with Laxton’s best-in-class Chameleon product range, we offer a unique solution to Law Enforcement and Military agencies,” comments Peter Harrington, Laxton’s APAC SVP of Strategic Alliances & Sales. “Officers in the field can now process information, react to incidents, and solve problems faster with an end-to-end information system that is live and up-to-date, whether it is mobile booking, investigations, or crime scene management. We see ImageWare as one of our important strategic partners to help us deliver front line operational solutions to grow our revenue streams in Police and Military agencies.”
