AFIS Integra-ID Comes to Cherokee County, GA

fingerprint(1)Perhaps you’ve heard of the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), NEC’s widely deployed system used to match fingerprints with criminals to help solve crimes. Today we announced the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia is using NEC’s AFIS Integra-ID to help solve crimes faster and get criminals off the street.

As you’ll see demonstrated in the Cherokee County press release, Integra-ID tends to help law enforcement agencies solve previously cold cases by giving forensics teams greater resources and matching ability to connect criminals with the evidence they leave behind.  Even more detail on Cherokee County is available in the online case study.

Forensics professionals in 30 countries around the globe rely on NEC’s AFIS technology to aid in the apprehension and conviction of criminals.  In a little more than a month, July 11-17, 2010, NEC will be showcasing this technology at the International Association for Identification 2010 Conference in Spokane, Wash.   It should be an informative show, and a good opportunity to see the technology in action.
