Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement returns for its 9th consecutive year as the only biometrics event to exclusively cater to the needs of federal government and local law enforcement. Join hundreds of biometric professionals (both industry and end users) to preview the future of biometric initiatives and technology, first hand from those leading the direction of our upcoming efforts.

About Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement

Identification measures are only as effective as long as they stay technologically ahead of the efforts to thwart them. The past decade has ushered in serious progress in identification accuracy and means but it has also ushered in new and creative methodologies for thwarting identification. New global challenges demand identification systems that are mobile, flexible, secure, fast, and provide near perfect accuracy. Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement will help bridge that gap.

Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement is designed for industry practitioners that set program standards and directions; operators who work hands on using biometrics as a tool in law enforcement and national defence, and software/hardware engineers who advance the capabilities of biometric collection. Industry players who are looking to improve efficiencies, upgrade frameworks, incorporate best practices, stay up to date with trends, and benchmark with the latest changes and legislation will find significant value in this event!

Together we will address your main challenges such as:

  • Reducing error margins in facial scans and fingerprint scans
  • Improving identification rates of latent and forensic scans
  • Creating more durable biometrics tools
  • Securing biometrics tools from cyber attacks and evasive tactics
  • Mobilizing biometrics scanning mediums
  • Overcoming process speed hurdles
  • Establishing national data standards and formats for improved interoperability
  • Securing departmental funding for implementation
  • Providing core training and implementation initiatives for hands on operators

Some of the concepts you will learn include:

  • Template protection
  • Verifier assessment
  • Policy and procedure flexibility
  • Developing metrics to assess biometric enterprise effectiveness
  • Transitioning existing records programs into digital format
  • Inter-program data sharing
  • Implementation of software that improves effectiveness of legacy systems
  • Utilization of commercial mobile devices as scanner solutions
  • Current legal landscape
  • Intuitive environment adaptation
  • Cancellable biometrics
  • Recognition from biometric patches
  • Gait recognition
  • Advantages and disadvantages of various biometric types
  • Cost reductions
  • System transitions
