  • The prison holds on average 3,000 inmates

  • They get 500 visitors per week, while the peak of visits is Saturday morning where they get 400 visitors as soon as they open.  They would like to keep the line as short as possible and the maximum wait time should not be more than 1 hour.

  • The database of inmates must be maintained purged.  They cannot have a person with more than one identity

  • The inmates identities must be verified when they temporarily leave and when they return.

  • The visitors will be enrolled as they arrive and checked against a black list.

  • The visitors identities will be verified when they leave.

  • In subsequent visits, their identity is verified when they enter and when they leave.

The consultant goes back to his office and two days later comes back with the following recommendation:


General information

  • The database will be local, with future interface to a national system to detect multiple offenders

  • Fingerprints as a biometric for accuracy and future interoperability with national system

  • At project startup they the will enroll the 3,000 inmates initially capturing ten rolled fingers, three photos of the face, demographic data, a signature and photos of tattoos and scars if they exist, and the application will produce a standard record based on the latest proposed standard ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2007

  • Development of custom applications

  • Forensic quality single finger scanner for accuracy and durability

  • 1 enrollment workstation, 2 1:1 verification and 1:N identification workstations and 1 server

  • One-to-many search and match takes 5 seconds.
