Polizei Niedersachsen, the state police of Lower Saxony in Germany, is getting an upgrade to its biometric booking system, care of Crossmatch and its Germany-base partner Hecosys.

The police organization has been using Crossmatch technology for quite some time, and according to Hecosys Managing Director Benjamin Helfmann the organization “has had great success with Crossmatch solutions over the past 10 years”. Now, it’s going to get Crossmatch L Scan 500 palm scanners supporting high-speed USB3 connectivity and 1,000 ppi imaging. The devices can also scan fingerprints.

Commenting on the deployment, Crossmatch VP Eduardo Parodi framed it within the company’s broader activities in serving government authorities, asserting that such clients “know they can depend on the reliability, performance and image quality of our solutions in critical use applications, such as law enforcement, refugee management and border control screening.”

The new deployment comes in the wake of Crossmatch’s launch of its DigitalPersona Composite Authentication platform at the Gartner IAM Summit, and soon after its launch of the FAP60 Thin Film Transistor sensor at GIS.
