Orange County, California, has chosen MorphoTrak’s MorphoBIS biometrics identification system for use in the county’s law enforcement agencies.
The Orange County Crime Lab will house the system and use it to provide real-time identification of suspects and criminals. The system will integrate fingerprints and palm prints and have the ability to conduct high-volume searches.
Although the crime lab has already been collecting biometric data, it will convert this data into the MorphoBIS system.
The Orange City Crime Lab supplies identification information to over 20 city police departments, the sheriff-coroner, the district attorney, the Probation Deparatment, Juvenile Hall, and university police departments at Cal State University Fullerton and the University of California Irvine.
