Nevada County Agency Adds Data Sharing Capabilities

Clark County Detention Center to increase access to Police Department data

LAS VEGAS -- The Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas has selected ImageWare's Face ID application and will develop a customized interface to allow the center to access the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's (LVMPD) repository of criminal data and images.

"Our ability to connect to the LVMPD's database, coupled with [the] facial recognition software will significantly expand the breadth of our investigative capabilities," said Curtis Pellerin, programmer analyst for the Clark County Detention Center. "We will now have access to all of LVMPD's mugshots and booking information and will be able to conduct facial recognition searches from their data as well."

The software utilizes facial recognition technology to search for and match facial characteristics of a suspect against a police department's Crime Capture System (CCS), a digital imaging solution for automated capture, storage and retrieval of booking images and related information.
