Easton, PA Police Officers Armed With BIO-key(R) Mobile Data Solution Access Information Anytime, Anywhere
Date:11/7/2007

Silent, Secure, Information Access Improves Officer Efficiency and Safety

WALL, N.J., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety, announced the award of a new contract with the Easton, PA Police Department to provide its patrol units with MobileCop(R), BIO-key's leading law enforcement wireless mobile data solution. With MobileCop, officers can query federal and state databases directly from laptops in their patrol cars, and without tying up the radio and a dispatcher, to obtain information on a person or vehicle.

"The officer safety aspect was an important consideration in our decision," said Easton Police Chief Larry Palmer. "At a traffic stop, for example, the officer will be alerted automatically when a MobileCop license plate check matches a reported stolen vehicle -- before he approaches the driver."

Easton Police Department joins sixteen neighboring law enforcement agencies with MobileCop-enabled patrol vehicles currently hosted by the Northampton County, PA Communications Center. Under the hosting arrangement, the Communications Center provides a secure virtual private network (VPN) tunnel between state and federal databases and local MobileCop users. The VPN is accessible through any broadband or WiFi network giving each of the participating agencies flexibility in selecting the carrier or carriers with the best coverage for the respective jurisdiction.

"A key benefit our solution provides these seventeen agencies is that they have the option to operate on a variety of public and private carrier networks," said Ken Souza, Vice President and General Manager of BIO-key's Law Enforcement Division. "All of the 115 MobileCop-enabled police units in the County can see the same alert as the officer at the scene, which ensures better backup."
