Next Generation Identification: Speed, Accuracy, Mobility, Durability

Biometrics is an evolving technology for government and law enforcement agencies. Threats are becoming more complex and we must stay armed with the most up-to-date and effective tools, techniques, and technologies in identification to prevent crimes and security issues before they start.

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.

Engage in discussions with representatives from DHS, the U.S. Army, CBP, FBI, Michigan State Police, TSA, USCIS, and others that will amplify your biometrics knowledge and growth. Don’t miss this year’s agenda that offers focused breakout sessions focused on future requirements, science and technology, and field operations.
