California RAPID-ID

Mobile Fingerprint Identification





California Mobile Fingerprint Identification System

Rapid and reliable identification. Anywhere, anytime.


The California Mobile Fingerprint Identification system allows California Law Enforcement agencies to use RAPID-ID with the CAL DOJ NEC AFIS. Agency staff can scan fingerprints with any FBI-Approved fingerprint scanner and then search DOJ’s statewide fingerprint database either by submitting the data wirelessly or between a wired USB device and a computer. Results are then returned within seconds; providing an individual's identifying data including their criminal history, outstanding warrants, sex offender status, parole and probation status, and mugshot (when available).
RAPID-ID makes it easy to manage every mobile device in use on the system with a single point connection to the RAPID-ID System. In addition, agencies can use the Transaction Manager to track the status of each fingerprint search transaction.

SAF-ID / RAPID-ID can be used on portable devices, such as the Motorola MC75 or Cogent BlueCheck. Multiple fingerprints can be captured by the mobile devices and submitted to a central fingerprint database. If there is a match, then the mugshot and criminal history can be displayed.The online transaction monitor can display customized results from multiple fingerprint devices. Information such as the type of device, whether or not a match occured, who submitted the search, and the agency that the match occured against can be displayed. This information can be filtered and searched.The online transaction monitor and the thick client can be used to view records matching fingerprint submissions. This can be used to review records that were matched in mobile applications. It is also used in facilities such as jails for identity verification at intake and release.Fingerprints that are submitted, as well as the fingerprints from matching records can be viewed. This has proven to be helpful to ensure that the quality of the submitted fingerprints was high enough to match against existing records.
