Mobile Fingerprint Identification






Rapid and Reliable Identification. Anywhere, anytime


Know who you are dealing with

DataWorks Plus' SAF-ID (also known as RAPID-ID) is an extremely fast and accurate solution that uses advanced fingerprint matching techniques to provide positive identification of an individual. SAF-ID allows an officer to scan a person’s finger on any FBI-approved fingerprint scanner and search a database for a positive match.  SAF-ID searches RISC, state, and local AFIS using a variety of fingerprint capture solutions. Search results can also include NCIC, state arrest history, mugshots (when on file), and wants/warrants, etc.



Multiple Hardware Options from Proven System Integrators

SAF-ID differs from other vendor offerings because our software supports fingerprint scanning hardware from numerous hardware manufacturers. Each scanner seamlessly integrates with the DataWorks Plus SAF-ID/RAPID-ID client. As we have the ability to test and evaluate all of these different devices, we inherently learn which devices perform the best and for the best value. With DataWorks Plus, your agency will have total flexibility when selecting the best fingerprint scanner for a wide variety of applications (i.e. one size does not fit all). Your agency won’t be tied to a specific hardware vendor.



Mobile Applications – Take it Anywhere

SAF-ID is mobile, so you can take it anywhere that positive identification is needed.  Fingerprints can be scanned with any FBI-approved fingerprint scanner. Images and results can be transmitted either wirelessly or between a wired USB device and computer. You can view the results on your Blackberry smart phone, MDT, or any computer.  All-in-one devices scan fingerprints and display results. Below are some examples of where SAF-ID is already being used:

  • Positive ID at booking and release
  • Positive ID in the court room
  • Positive ID at traffic stops
  • Positive ID prior to serving a warrant
  • Positive ID of victim at a crime scene
  • Sexual offender registration
  • Medical examiner's office, medical history
  • Watch-list of high priority suspects
  • Mobile applications for positive ID in the field


Statewide Solutions

We have provided RAPID-ID to hundreds of agencies across the nation, including statewide access systems within the states of California, Georgia, Florida, Missouri, Texas, and Virginia.



RAPID-ID in use at CCBI (NC)

The following YouTube video shows how DataWorks Plus has worked with Wake County CCBI to install and train their officers on how to use RAPID-ID. RAPID-ID has helped CCBI to correctly and quickly identify individuals at car crashes, routine traffic stops, and at arrests. CCBI uses wireless RAPID-ID devices so they can identify individuals in the field. The fingerprints are captured and sent to CCBI's arrest fingerprint database and the results are returned within seconds providing the officer with a photograph and information on the individual. This has improved officer safety and productivity by allowing them to quickly know who they are dealing with.




Integrated FunctionalityRapid-ID Logo

SAF-ID seamlessly integrates with the following DataWorks Plus products:

  • LiveScan Plus: By combining SAF-ID with LiveScan Plus, you can use the identification functionality of SAF-ID from any live scan workstation. SAF-ID will be able to see if an individual has previously been booked into the system. This has proven especially useful in jail environments for inmate booking, transport, and release by speeding up the process and eliminating redundant data entry.
  • NIST Manager Plus: By combining SAF-ID with NIST Manager Plus, all fingerprint data enrolled into your SAF-ID database will be sent to your NIST archive as well. Additionally, all fingerprint records from your NIST archive will automatically be contributed to your SAF-ID database for more in-depth fingerprint searches and up-to-date results with SAF-ID.
  • Digital PhotoManager: SAF-ID will enhance your booking process when combined with Digital PhotoManager. During inmate booking, transport, and release, SAF-ID can verify an individual's identity and find if any previous bookings of the individual are recorded within the system. This increases the speed of booking and eliminates redundant data entry.

SAF-ID can also interface with your agency's current live scan devices, existing NIST archives or AFIS. DataWorks Plus will help determine the most efficient and cost effective methods to interface your systems' hardware and software together. This protects your investments and maximizes the overall value of SAF-ID to your agency.
