SAN DIEGO -- ImageWare Systems (www.iwsinc.com) announced that the Indianapolis Police Department has selected the company to streamline its sex offender registration process by implementing a dedicated offender registry location to easily capture, store and retrieve offender images and related information. By leveraging its existing ImageWare Crime Capture System (CCS), the Indianapolis PD can effortlessly act in accordance with Indiana's sex and violent offender statute, which requires all registered offenders to renew photo images yearly and make them readily available for Web posting.

"We are dedicated to upholding the highest professional standards while serving the community in which we work and live," said Paula Wright, Criminal Records Section manager of the Indianapolis Police Department. "With ImageWare's CCS program, our department will speed and improve the efficiency of our sex offender registration process, as well as continue to effectively manage our booking procedure."

ImageWare's Crime Capture System is a digital booking solution for law enforcement organizations to capture, store and retrieve booking images and related information electronically in a stand-alone, networked or Web-based environment. The CCS program also allows users the capability to scan or import photos such as crime scenes, weapons and vehicles, as well as create classified databases for gang members, sex offenders, inmates and employees. Crime Capture System users can create employee ID cards or inmate wristbands, complete with photos and barcodes through appropriate databases.

"We are pleased that the Indianapolis PD is taking advantage of ImageWare's CCS for more than just digital booking and constructing line-ups," said Lori Rodriguez, president of ImageWare's Law Enforcement Division. "CCS is designed to empower law enforcement agencies to replace manual processes with automated criminal investigations and bookings."
