- E-Ticketing Solution from BIO-key and Advanced Public Safety Minimizes

Officer Risk, Reduces Cost and Increases Accuracy -

WALL, N.J., and DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety solutions, and Advanced Public Safety (APS), a leading provider of electronic ticketing software for public safety agencies, announced today that the Neosho, Missouri Police Department has chosen the companies to provide the agency with a complete electronic traffic citation system.

Since 1999, Neosho Police Department patrol officers have used MobileCop(TM), BIO-key's wireless law enforcement query and messaging solution. At traffic stops, the solution allows officers to check federal and state databases for any stolen vehicle or outstanding warrant alerts and to obtain other relevant information on the vehicle and driver. Previously, officers had to manually transcribe driver and vehicle registration information from the MobileCop laptop screen in their patrol cars onto hard copy traffic warning and citation forms.

With the APS QuickTicket(TM) software integrated within BIO-Key's MobileCop solution, Neosho officers will have a system that eliminates handwritten forms and uses unique APS software capabilities to automatically move MobileCop query response data to electronic forms -- significantly reducing data entry while improving accuracy.

At a traffic stop, the officer enters the violator's information into the MobileCop application to obtain background information from available national, state, and local databases. The APS QuickTicket software then auto-populates the requisite information from the mobile query database files directly onto the agency's citation forms. The officers print a copy of the citation for the violator, and electronically transfer the data to be automatically uploaded to police department and city court databases, which reduces the manual data entry process.

"The system eliminates re-keying information two or three times, improving overall efficiency. It also allows our officers to clear traffic stops faster, which improves safety on the roadside," said Neosho Police Chief Dave McCracken.

"Law enforcement agencies can benefit from electronic traffic citation solutions to increase efficiency by reducing the time required for roadside traffic stops, eliminating redundant manual data entry, and decreasing the number of tickets dismissed by courts because they are incomplete, inaccurate or illegible," added Jack Siney, Chief Operating Officer of Advanced Public Safety. "A key factor in the selection of BIO-key and APS was our record of successfully integrating our solutions for other MobileCop customers, including the Montgomery County Police Department in Maryland and the Saginaw County Sheriff's Dispatch Center in Michigan."

Mike DePasquale, President and CEO of BIO-key added, "By partnering with APS we can deliver a superior solution that not only reduces overall costs of operation, but also improves officer safety and the accuracy of data entry. Law Enforcement agencies implementing this solution immediately benefit from more timely and accurate information."
