Enforcing the Law Using Biometrics

Enforcing the Law Using Biometrics

Future growth in law enforcement mainly depends on the growth of Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) technology. Costs associated with the system varies with respect to size and speed requirements.

Systems with short lifecycle translates to additional requirement for upgrades, thus driving revenue growth for this segment.

One of the trends is for front-end devices to be separated from the AFIS systems; this largely accounts for ongoing market opportunities in the device-producing segment. In portable biometrics, there is strong demand to perform booking in the field but the gap between procedural policy and new technology is limiting the adoption of mobile devices.

Budgetary issues, policy and operational culture, and limited adoption in less-developed markets are restraining growth. Expenditure is not reaching its full potential at present.

Law enforcement is forecast to expand mainly due to the growing need for system maintenance in mature markets and new adoption in less mature markets. The law enforcement segment possesses. characteristics similar to that of the border control and eGovernment segments, especially in terms of information collection and reliance on back-end systems.
