Posted on April 9, 2012 @ 03:06 pm



3M Cogent announced that it was awarded a 10-year contract to supply high-resolution LiveScan booking systems and biometric identification solutions to the Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF). The HKPF awarded the contract to 3M Cogent based on its proven performance, merit and value proposition.

3M Cogent software and hardware will be used to capture tenprints and palm prints in accordance with the HKPF’s ANSI/NIST standard.

“HKPF’s decision re-affirms 3M Cogent as an industry leader in providing biometric identification solutions. Under 3M’s corporate leadership, we are committed to providing world-class, innovative biometric products, systems and solutions to our customers through our continuous investment in research and development.”

Under the contract, 3M Cogent will supply HKPF with ninety-two ruggedized LiveScan booking stations with adjustable cabinets, FBI certified 1000 pixels-per-inch (ppi) livescans for tenprint and palm capture, and ongoing support and maintenance. The LiveScan stations will be deployed into 32 HKPF branches and three immigration locations across the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

3M Cogent’s LiveScans will enable HKPF to electronically submit fingerprint and palm print records to the HKPF’s backend systems, including the Computer Assisted Palmprint and Fingerprint Identification System (CAPFIS). 3M Cogent was responsible for implementing the HKPF CAPFIS in 2009.

“Implementing new LiveScan systems is imperative to the modernization of HKPF’s biometric identification capabilities,” stated an official with the Hong Kong Police Force. “3M Cogent’s LiveScans will interface seamlessly with other HKPF systems, significantly improving subject booking operations, streamlining the overall arrest processing procedure, and further enhancing our operational efficiencies and crime-solving capabilities.”

“We are pleased that HKPF has decided to build upon our current relationship,” commented Matt Pepe, COO of 3M Cogent. “HKPF’s decision re-affirms 3M Cogent as an industry leader in providing biometric identification solutions. Under 3M’s corporate leadership, we are committed to providing world-class, innovative biometric products, systems and solutions to our customers through our continuous investment in research and development.”
