The Changing Face of Law Enforcement Investigations
Federal law enforcement agencies have historically leveraged biometric information to aid in investigations, enforcement of authorized access to prevent fraud, or as validation for entry or services. The Department of Justice (DoJ) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are increasingly using biometrics as central tools in their missions. However, biometric information can be difficult to access — siloed, specific to agency use, stored in a back office, or otherwise not field enabled, much less for real-time access. Given new requirements, along with new biometric markers, agencies must rethink their approach to storing, automating, and delivering secure platforms at scale for rapid analysis and field forward identification.
