BIO-key(R) Announces Contracts for New Criminal Justice Data Sharing Solution

Law Enforcement Officials Armed with InfoExchange(TM) Software Access Local

Information Anytime and Anywhere

WALL, N.J., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in wireless public safety solutions and finger based biometric identification, today announced the release of its InfoExchange Software Module and its acceptance by several agencies including the Kingston (NY) Police Department. This contract represents BIO-key's first with the municipality of Kingston.

BIO-key's InfoExchange software component delivers information from records management systems (RMS) and other local data sources directly to officers and investigators on the street. The InfoExchange software is fully integrated with MobileCop(R) and PocketCop(R), BIO-key's mobile data solutions for laptops and handhelds. Consequently, with a single request, officers can now access local law enforcement information, as well as the national and state data they rely on to identify dangerous or wanted individuals.

The Kingston (NY) Police Department will use InfoExchange to provide direct wireless mobile access to information on individuals and incidents in the department's RMS. Other examples of agencies use of InfoExchange include the Ocean County (NJ) Prosecutor's Office application of InfoExchange software to deliver information from the agency's case management system to investigators, including the tracking requirements for released sex offenders under Megan's Law.

Existing BIO-key customer agencies, such as the Oklahoma County (OK) Sheriff's Office are also upgrading their systems with the purchase of InfoExchange software. The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, faced with the challenge of how to enable its MobileCop users to access information from several local RMS databases, purchased InfoExchange. They now can readily access information on the nearly 60,000 individuals processed through their detention facility every year and the 56,000 active warrants issued by County Court system.

"With this much information, we needed an effective way to share master name records and warrant status," said Sergeant Matt Jackson of the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office. "We didn't want to force law enforcement officers to run an individual's credentials through separate applications. With InfoExchange, we will be able to provide a single name search and return information from multiple databases."

Ken Souza, Vice President and General Manager of BIO-key's Law Enforcement Division observed that, "The level of early interest we're seeing is not surprising. The concept behind InfoExchange came directly from our customers, who needed a solution so they could query multiple data sources, including RMSs, within their standard field queries without costly, custom software changes."
