BIO-key(R) Announces Emergency Alert and Management Solutions for Schools and Campuses
Date:8/20/2008

MobileSRO(TM) and MobileCampus(TM) Wireless Data Communications Link School

Security, Administration and Faculty

WALL, N.J., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety solutions, today announced the availability of MobileSRO(TM) and MobileCampus(TM), silent, secure emergency alert and management solutions for K-12 schools and higher education, respectively.

MobileSRO can be deployed on a BlackBerry, or other smartphone, thereby allowing a teacher or administrator to quickly and easily send a silent alert to the school resource officer (SRO), or other designated security personnel, without unnecessarily alarming students or provoking an intruder. Security personnel and administrators can also use MobileSRO to alert other faculty and staff about an evolving incident, and how to protect themselves and their students until the situation is resolved. MobileSRO can also be used to link the school resource officer directly with the local public safety 911-center to immediately dispatch police, fire and emergency medical personnel to the scene.

MobileCampus offers similar functionality for campus police and administrators in colleges, universities, medical centers and other campus-based organizations. In addition, MobileCampus, like MobileSRO, can link to student and faculty databases enabling campus police officers to verify the identity of individuals in a building or on the campus.

Both solutions can also be used for day-to-day non-emergency messages and all-staff announcements including the presence of a visitor. MobileSRO and MobileCampus can be deployed on any combination of PCs, laptops and BlackBerry and Windows Mobile smartphones.

MobileSRO and MobileCampus are built on BIO-key's MobileCop(R) secure, wireless mobile data communications platform that is currently used by more than 750 police and other public safety departments in the U.S. to dispatch and manage first responders in the field. Both solutions are superior to currently available school emergency alert products based on patching into the police radio system or using cell phone text messaging. Unlike voice radio-based systems, BIO-key's silent, "scanner-proof" communications approach lets administrators better manage a sensitive incident in a school or campus environment. While the delivery of text messages may be affected by cell phone network capacity, BIO-key's school and campus solutions offer guaranteed message delivery and audible alerts for critical messages.

"With MobileSRO and MobileCampus, BIO-key is breaking out beyond our traditional law enforcement mobile data market to bring new and innovative solutions to those who most need it -- school resource and campus patrol officers and administrators chartered to protect our young children and college students," said Ken Souza, Senior Vice President and General Manager of BIO-key's Law Enforcement Division. "School departments and higher education institutions now have access to the same proven emergency alert and management technology used by thousands of first responders across the country on a daily basis."
