Where: tweetchat.com (hashtag #biometricchat)
What: Tweet chat on IAFIS Biometrics and Law Enforcement with Michael D. Kirkpatrick (@MDKConsulting)
Topics: The past, present and future of biometric ID management applications in law enforcement, interoperability, modalities.
This month promises to be an exciting #biometricchat as we hand the reigns over to Jason and the team at Securlinx (on Twitter @SecurLinx) for administration of the tweet chat. I heard today that Securlinx has invited Michael Kirkpatrick, the FBI’s Assistant Director in Charge of the Bureau’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division from January 2001 – August 2004, who led the Division through profound IT changes especially relating to the application of biometric technologies to the challenges of law enforcement and the transition from a paper to an electronic system.
You can read more about Michael’s background over at the Securlinx blog by clicking here.
Currently, the FBI maintains the world’s largest collection of biometric data and facilitates information sharing between law enforcement organizations and a range of both public and private entities. The CJIS center handles more than 61 million ten-print submissions a year. Average response time for an electronic criminal fingerprint submission is about 27 minutes, Electronic civil submissions are processed within 72 minutes.
Since the FBI essentially paved the way from using a paper fingerprinting system to the modern Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) and Michael was a key part of facilitating that transition, this promises to be an excellent topic and a very interesting conversation. Please join us and we hope that you will spread the word among the biometrics and security communities to join in on the conversation.
Great job by Jason and his team at Securlinx, we are excited to participate in the conversation!
