Mobile ID for Law Enforcement

Biometric Identity Solution

Flexible, rapid Mobile ID and identity verification solutions for law enforcement

The Challenge

In an ideal world all law enforcement agencies would have the front-line capabilities that rapid Mobile ID provides. Knowing who you are dealing with is fundamental to the mission and to officer safety. However, the reality is that IT resources are stretched, device proliferation is a burden and budgetary constraints delay or cancel many projects.

The Solution: Mobile ID Reimagined

Crossmatch has reimagined rapid Mobile ID utilizing the latest in TFT fingerprint reader technology and packaged it in a compact handheld portfolio.

Leveraging a smart device-based application, the FAP 30 PIV fingerprint reader easily connects via the USB port to process identity checks or provide irrefutable proof-of-presence and acceptance for a wide range of in-field use cases.

Highly Mobile

Compact wireless handheld kit not impacted by sunlight is easily carried or placed in jacket pocket.

Easy to Use

Simple, safe one-handed use. Clear and easy to follow UI. Auto capture ensures error-free prints.


Supports apps such as eCitation. APIs enable integration of fingerprint reader for proof-of-presence.


Use our smart device or leverage own phone, tablet or laptop based on operating procedures.


Affordable TFT fingerprint technology that won’t become obsolete when phone designs change.


Capacitive Thin-Film Transistor (TFT) fingerprint reader is PIV FAP 30 Mobile compliant.

Thoughtful design ensures safety and ease of use

A thoughtfully designed portfolio secures a NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader fingerprint device in a compact, simple to use handheld kit that is safely operated with a single-hand. An elastic carry/hand strap avoids accidental drops and provides stability during fingerprinting.
