Integrated Biometrics Identification System

Editor's Note: The technology certainly has homeland security/counterterrorism applications.

A recent benefit of computer technology is the ability for a police officer to transmit a record of an individual's fingerprint impressions from the field and receive confirmation of identity in the amount of time a routine detention takes. Devices such as the Integrated Biometric Identification System (IBIS) or Remote Data Terminal (RDT) make it possible to catch wanted persons while they are stopped, regardless of the name or identification they provide.
