Police AFIS, Southeast Asia
The police wanted to utilize a large database to identify criminals and suspects using fingerprints.
One major challenge was the enrollment of a massive amount of data (160 million records) from multiple legacy databases into the new AFIS system that supports fingerprints, faces, irises, footprints, and palmprints including 1:1. The system needed to provide latent fingerprint and open source database support and interoperability. Software for enrollment and identification stations including mobile kits that can be used without external power or internet connection was similarly required.
Innovatrics AFIS was deployed to support identification, verification, and ANSI/ISO verification. More than 160 million of 10 print records together with additional data have been migrated. While Latent editor was provided to extend latent fingerprints for higher accuracy, the Latent case module supported identification in the latent fingerprint database. Consequently, identification was supported in all latent and standard fingerprints combinations. SDKs made it possible to support enrollment stations and mobile kits including smartphone and tablet applications. Furthermore, all modalities were supported for 1:1 verification with additional 1:N support for fingerprints and face.
The police have successfully implemented the new AFIS system to identify potential suspects. In fact, several cases were resolved using the solution. Even victims of natural disasters could be identified using the system.
