Biometrics in Prison Services

To improve the identification process of criminals the Ministry of Justice in The Netherlands has implemented a nationwide biometric identification program through the criminal justice chain.

HSB has participated from the first successful pilots until full implementation within several projects:

  • inmate control in prisons with enrolment, verification and central ABIS
  • verification solution at national level at courts and institutions
  • central register with fingerprint database (ABIS)

Goal of the system is to maintain a unique identity.

Every prisoner is registered once in a central system. BioRegistrator® is used a the central identity management software platform for document management, registration, capture fingerprints & face, biometric quality tools and multiple interfaces to other legacy systems.

At initial registration 10 fingers are enrolled together with a live facial image. ID-documents are scanned. In each prison the system will verify fingerprints of inmates wiht several verification kiosks for visitor registration, leave, court visits, etcetera. Millions of biometric transactions per year are handled with the full web based system. BioRegistrator® is used as front-end and back-end for all processing. A fast fingerprint AFIS is integrated. Presently all prisons in The Netherlands are using the system.
