Motorola Inc. has won a contract to provide the Southwest Alabama Integrated Criminal Justice System with 10 LiveScan Station 3000s, a fingerprint identification system.
The value of the contract was not disclosed by the Schaumberg, Ill.-based company. The project is scheduled to begin in early 2003.
Motorola's integrated LiveScan network will enable law enforcement officials throughout southwest Alabama to identify individuals via a rapid fingerprint search against the established Alabama State Automated Fingerprint Identification System, the company said.
The new system will further support the exchange of fingerprint data between southwest Alabama counties, the state of Alabama and the FBI.
The LSS 3000 offers an integrated booking solution with the benefit of having mug shot, palm and fingerprint capture capabilities in a single, stand-alone unit, according to the company.
The Southwest Alabama Integrated Criminal Justice System has received $10 million in federal funds as part of an integrated criminal justice projects in eight counties in southwest Alabama.
The counties participating in the initiative, announced Dec. 20, are Baldwin, Choctaw, Clark, Conecuh, Escambia, Mobile, Monroe and Washington.
Motorola provides integrated communications and information solutions for public safety, public service, government and enterprise customers worldwide. The company has more than 111,000 employees and annual revenue of $30 billion.
