BIO-key(R) Receives New Mobile Data Contract Award From Indiana Police Agency
Date:3/31/2008

MobileCop(R) Software Is Force Multiplier for Shelbyville Police Department

WALL, N.J., March 31 /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 award of a contract from the Shelbyville, IN Police Department ("Department") for the Department's first mobile data system. Using MobileCop(TM) software, BIO-key's wireless messaging and query solution, officers on the road have instantaneous access from in-car laptops to state and federal law enforcement and motor vehicles databases. Shelbyville joins the Indiana State Police and more than forty other municipal and county law enforcement agencies in the state already using MobileCop.

The MobileCop implementation is especially timely, with the imminent opening of the Indiana Live! Casino in Shelbyville. When completed, the casino will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As the closest casino to Indianapolis, less than 30 miles away, it is expected to dramatically increase traffic and other law enforcement-related activity for the Department's patrol officers and its dispatch center staff.

With MobileCop in their vehicles, patrol officers can check vehicle registrations and drivers licenses without having to call the dispatch center -- freeing dispatchers to handle emergency calls, and delivering critical information directly and more quickly to the officer on scene.

MobileCop is expected to increase the total number of hours officers are on the street and on patrol by as much as 5%. All officers have department-issued take home vehicles. Since they can now read roll call, check email, and perform other administrative functions right on their in-vehicle laptops, they don't need to regularly check in at the station at the beginning or end of their shifts.

"MobileCop gives us the ability to stretch our available resources without compromising officer safety," according to Shelbyville Police Department Sergeant Michael Turner. "We can now keep officers in the field where they are a visible deterrent to crime and can respond more quickly. This will also provide more time for dispatchers to more effectively respond to the needs of the public."

"With local budgets tighter and few federal grant dollars available for hiring new officers, law enforcement agencies across the country rely on MobileCop and our other mobile data solutions to act as a force multiplier, enabling them to meet increased demands with the resources they have at hand," added Ken Souza, Vice President and General Manager of BIO-key's Law Enforcement Division.
