L-1 Driver's License Issuance Workstations to Support MS Expanded Driver's
STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: ID), a leading provider of identity solutions and services, today announced that the L-1 Secure Credentialing Division received a three and a half year, $5.9 million contract expansion from the state of Mississippi (MS). The contract calls for 51 complete new driver's license issuance workstations from L-1 to be used throughout the state's Department of Public Safety locations. MS issues more than 750,000 licenses annually.
"L-1 has been a trusted partner to Mississippi for many years and the secure credentialing solutions they provide are an important element in our ability to provide citizens with a secure driver's license quickly and conveniently across the state," said Lt. Colonel Joseph L. Rigby, Director of the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. "L-1 has demonstrated the ability to easily scale to accommodate our changing needs and with our planned system upgrades and location expansions, L-1 will remain an important factor in our continued success."
The state of MS uses an over-the-counter secure credentialing production system that processes and issues driver's licenses on the spot at bureau locations. The integrated workstations from L-1 include L-1 ImageCams for digital portrait capture, personal computers, driver's license\ID card printers, fingerprint scanners, flatbed document scanners and signature pads and will help MS to quickly and securely process and issue valid driver's licenses. The new systems from L-1 will be used as part of an upgrade of existing systems across the network and to support new locations planned for the future.
