Harrisonburg, VA Police Launch Multi-agency Data Interoperability System

WALL, N.J., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety solutions, and its partner, DaProSystems today announced a contract award from the Harrisonburg, VA Police Department for a mobile data solution. Harrisonburg's police department has successfully used DaProSystems' public safety system records management system (RMS) software since 1999.

Harrisonburg is deploying MobileCop(R), BIO-key's wireless query and messaging solution and DaProSystems' Mobile FR field reporting tool in laptops across the police department's patrol vehicle fleet. With this newly integrated system, patrol officers will be able to communicate silently and securely with the dispatch center, query state and federal criminal justice databases, and complete and submit field reports on-scene from within their vehicles.

"Allowing officers to obtain information on outstanding arrest warrants and stolen vehicles directly without the assistance of a dispatcher -- and enabling them to complete incident reports while in the field rather than the station -- will make our entire department more productive and effective," said Captain Dan Claytor of the Harrisonburg Police Department.

The current contract is the first phase in the development of a planned regional mobile data system. When the rollout is completed, the regional dispatch center, using DaProSystems' computer aided dispatch (CAD) software, will be able to monitor and deploy the status of MobileCop and PocketCop-enabled police, fire and rescue units throughout Harrisonburg County.

"Ultimately this will give us an interoperable data communications system that will help us get the right resources we need to respond to any incident anywhere in the County," said Lieutenant Kurt Boshart of the Harrisonburg Police Department.

"We're pleased that Harrisonburg has selected BIO-key for its first mobile data system and joined the growing number of law enforcement agencies in Virginia benefiting from the seamless integration of our products with DaProSystems Public Safety Software solutions," said Ken Souza, Vice President and General Manager of BIO-key's Law Enforcement Division.
