Wisconsin Law Enforcement Agencies Get New Crime Suspect Identification Technology From IQ Biometrix

Software Creates Fast, Accurate Composite Sketches of Police Suspects to Help in Arrests

FREMONT, Calif, March 9, 2004 -- IQ Biometrix Inc. (OTCBB:IQBM) today announced that Wisconsin law enforcement agencies will get training in a new leading edge technology to identify, track and apprehend criminals. Investigators from a dozen Wisconsin agencies will be participating in advanced training in FACES(TM) on March 11. They will also learn witness interview techniques to develop accurate composites and review legal issues around use of composite evidence.

The IQ Biometrix FACES(TM) system allows photo-like images of suspects to be created on a computer by selecting from a database of 4400 facial features, hair styles, hats, scars and tattoos. This capability means that any police officer can create a composite -- regardless of their artistic skills or experience. It allows composites to be developed without the cost or delay of using a professional sketch artist.

FACES(TM) composites can be used in police bulletins to alert the public and media. They can also be instantly transmitted between police stations and patrol cars, or between different jurisdictions to widen the search for suspects.

The training is being sponsored by the Oshkosh Police Department and will be take place at the Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton.
"Our detectives have a particularly tough challenge when a crime has been committed by an unknown perpetrator," said Sergeant Don Wilson of Oshkosh Police Department. "With the IQ Biometrix FACES(TM) system detectives can quickly develop composite images during their witness interviews and use the composite to get a positive identification that can lead to an arrest."

The training is being delivered by CTS Associates, based in Patchogue, N.Y., which provides special operations training to police and military agencies across the country.
