3M Cogent wins Hong Kong Police Force contract

10/04/12

3M Cogent has been awarded a 10-year contract to supply high-resolution LiveScan booking systems and biometric identification solutions to the Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF).

The HKPF will use the technology to capture tenprints and palm prints in accordance with the HKPF’s ANSI/NIST standard.

Under the contract, 3M Cogent will supply HKPF with 92 ruggedized LiveScan booking stations with adjustable cabinets, FBI certified 1000 pixels-per-inch (ppi) livescans for tenprint and palm capture, and ongoing support and maintenance. The LiveScan stations will be deployed into 32 HKPF branches and three immigration locations across the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The solution will enable HKPF to electronically submit fingerprint and palm print records to the HKPF’s backend systems, including the Computer Assisted Palmprint and Fingerprint Identification System (CAPFIS). 3M Cogent was responsible for implementing the HKPF CAPFIS in 2009.

“Implementing new LiveScan systems is imperative to the modernization of HKPF’s biometric identification capabilities,” stated an official with the Hong Kong Police Force.

“3M Cogent’s LiveScans will interface seamlessly with other HKPF systems, significantly improving subject booking operations, streamlining the overall arrest processing procedure, and further enhancing our operational efficiencies and crime-solving capabilities.”
