The sheriff’s office in Pinal County, Arizona adopted a mobile biometric identification system to help identify suspects in any location, reports KPHO.
The office will use the MORIS identification system that incorporates biometric readings of irises, fingerprints and facial recognition through a mobile device that connects to a smart phone. Deputies will use the system to identify suspects who have no identification and undocumented immigrants.
The system will verify identification by tapping into a database of biometric data points that the sheriff’s office started collecting in 2010. The database contains information on about 10,000 individuals.
PCSO purchased 75 of the MORIS devices and only intends to use them with consent of the individual, or if deputies have probable cause about a suspect.
