Law Enforcement Agencies Get New Crime Suspect Identification
Technology From IQ Biometrix
Creates Fast, Accurate Composite Sketches of Police Suspects
to Help in Arrests
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.
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.
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.
training is being sponsored by the Oshkosh Police Department
and will be take place at the Fox Valley Technical College
"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."
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.
