Mobile Fingerprint Identification

 Evolution Mobile Fingerprint Device

 

 The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association through a grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency’s Local Technology Workgroup and in cooperation with the Pennsylvania State Police is providing Mobile ID equipment to police departments to conduct fingerprint searches from the field.

In cooperation with the Pennsylvania Justice Network, the Association has established a secure server and infrastructure to receive the transmissions from the Mobile ID device and transmit it securely to the Pennsylvania State Police Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS).

Through the grant, the Association will be providing DataWorks Plus Model Evolution Rapid ID Device. These devices will operate on a managed secure cellular network that will be included with the device. The grant provides the devices and the first year’s cellular service.  After the first year, the police department will be responsible for maintenance fees and cellular service.  The system and device maintenance fee is $582.00 and the secure cellular service is $408 per year per devices.

Once the grant is over, additional units may be purchased at $2,500 each.  The unit comes with one year prepaid secure cellular service.  Each unit requires annual system and device maintenance and additional prepaid cellular service for the next year. In addition to a new device, there are a few used devices from our pilot project that are available for just the cost of maintenance and cellular service.
