IQ Biometrix Partners with CTS Associates Inc. to Deliver Counter-Terrorism Training Strategy

FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 15, 2003
IQ Biometrix Inc. IQBM, a worldwide provider of integrated law enforcement and security solutions, announced today a partnership with CTS Associates Inc. to provide terrorist training to law enforcement agencies across the US.

"IQ Biometrix and CTS are joining forces to answer an immediate and critical need of local governments: ensuring their police are ready to serve as the front line in the war against terrorism," said William Scigliano, CEO and President of IQBM. "The Department of Homeland Security has directed municipalities to take a key role in preparing for, preventing and responding to terrorist attacks. Meeting that responsibility requires police officers to be trained to identify potential terrorist threats, ensure rapid communication to establish coordinated pre-emptive action, and if the worse happens, to minimize harm and loss of life."

"CTS Associates Inc. has extensive experience in law enforcement training and consultation on special police and military services, and currently delivers programs to thousands of law enforcement and defense personnel across the country on terrorism and counter-terrorism training," said Allan Balchi, founder of CTS and a United States Marine Corps veteran with 23 years of active service. "Our strength is delivering quality, cost-effective training enhancing the overall capabilities of our clients."

"What CTS does is simply share all the practical actionable experience we have accumulated through knowledge, experience and performance," said Louis Savelli, Senior Instructor at CTS and member of the International Counter-Terrorism Officers Association. "We welcome IQBM's involvement in currently scheduled courses and the extension of that training through all regions of the country."

Terrorism and counter-terrorism programs delivered by CTS include:

- Contemporary terrorism understanding and investigation
- Tactics and understanding for patrol personnel
- Terrorist/extremist interdiction
- Hostage negotiation tactics and techniques
- Critical incident reporting
- Intelligence and link analysis
- Interview and interrogation techniques
- Narcoterrorism

The IQBM/CTS training strategy is being developed for full implementation in Fall 2003. Municipal or law enforcement agencies requiring further information on CTS courses and services can visit the website at www.ctsassociatesinc.com.
