FREMONT, Calif., June 29, 2004--IQ Biometrix Inc. (OTCBB:IQBM),
a provider of integrated law enforcement and security solutions,
announced today that the Durham North Carolina police department
and the Virginia State Police have purchased FACES 4.0 suspect
composite technology and training.
The Durham police department
used funding from the Local Law Enforcement Block Grants
(LLEBG) program of the Department of Justice for a site
license which will enable officers in the department's two
investigative division offices to use FACES 4.0 to identify
and track suspects.
"We're very pleased
that Department of Justice funding has been used to give
police advanced FACES technology to help solve crimes and
increase public safety," said Bill Scigliano, CEO and
President of IQ Biometrix.
Additionally, IQBM announced
that the Virginia State Police has purchased FACES technology
for seven of its regional investigative offices. The Virginia
State Police also plan to use FACES 4.0 to provide suspect
composite and identification support to smaller regional
police departments across the state to reduce the cost and
delay of professional sketch artists.
Virginia State Police also
sponsored FACES 4.0 training for local law enforcement agencies
to ensure that there is a standard across the state for
developing and sharing composite evidence. Participating
agencies included Winchester, Reidsville, Roanoke County,
Clarksburg, and Hatboro police departments, and the Tazwell
county sheriff's office.
