Fulcrum Biometrics and At-Scene, a provider of mobile law enforcement applications, announced that the iBolo law enforcement mobile application is now integrated with the FbF mobileOne biometric fingerprint accessory to allow field collection of biometric data. The solution enables officers in the field to use smart phones and other mobile devices to quickly identify, categorize and track contacts, suspects and arrestees with a combination of photos, GPS locations, field notes and biometric fingerprint data. This information can be saved to databases on FIPS-compliant servers and can be used to create instant suspect bulletins for dissemination to other officers, departments or law enforcement agencies.
Most biometric identification systems currently used by law enforcement officers in the field involve large, limited-purpose devices that can be cost-prohibitive to deploy across an entire force and are too cumbersome for use by officers working on foot, bicycles, horses or public transit. The FbF mobileOne fingerprint accessory is a sleek-fitting sleeve that easily snaps onto iOS-based mobile devices and can be used with iBolo running on the Apple iPhone or iPod touch to provide a low-cost, multi-purpose mobile law enforcement solution that is FIPS-compliant, yet easily fits into an officer’s pocket.
With the iBolo application and the integrated FbF mobileOne biometric fingerprint accessory, law enforcement officers can easily create and share information bulletins, pickups, holds, arrest bulletins and Bolo alerts in the field, with information including:
- High-quality, PIV-compliant biometric fingerprint data
- Photographs of contacts, distinctive markings, tattoos, etc.
- GPS map locations for documenting, tracking and trending for ongoing investigations
- Categorization by crime, gang affiliation, case numbers or customized categories
- Data integration using Law Enforcement Technology Group’s FIPS-compliant servers, providing seamless integration with CAD and RMS systems.
Together, iBolo and FbF mobileOne improve officer safety and productivity in the field, whether they are in cars, on foot, motorcycles, bicycles or public transportation.
In November 2011, FbF mobileOne was honored with two prestigious awards from the law enforcement community: the Cygnus Law Enforcement Group’s Innovation Award for Forensics and the “best in competition” Paramount Award given to the single product or service deemed the most innovative, new law enforcement product introduced in 2011. The awards were announced at the 118th International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference and exhibition in Chicago.
