Biometrics on Android

Having created tuServ on Android, Black Marble has developed a Biometrics module which is also available on Android! Developed with the Home Office and Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire, Constabularies, officers can scan biometrics in two simple steps! Officers no longer need to rely on individuals providing accurate details. Instead, officers can scan two prints. Once scanned, and a quality rating established, a multiple system search will begin. Any matches will be returned with a confidence rating, providing assurance that the individual has been correctly identified.

The biometrics process can be provided as an integrated module of tuServ or be a standalone application. Integrating the biometrics module as part of tuServ allows the officer to search for a suspect across police systems. Once any terms and conditions have been agreed by the suspect, the officer can begin the biometrics scanning process.

To scan the biometrics, the suspect will be asked to place a certain finger onto the fingerprint reader, then release once a print has been scanned. This process is repeated twice before the prints are submitted for search, and results are returned. If a force has adopted the Event Dashboard tuServ module, any person data returned will be displayed within the officers Event Dashboard that they are currently working in. The officer is guided throughout the entire process, step by step, with tuServ’s clear and simple user interface. Notes and tips for the officer will appear throughout to assist.

I think that the introduction of the laptops/slates, and now tuServ is the best thing that has happened since I joined the Constabulary. Both have made working life so much quicker and easier. I can already see the numerous benefits that tuServ has to offer. Detective Constable, Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
