Dynamic Imaging Systems is proud to announce that Aurora Police Department, CO has replaced their existing PSP Image Bank system with the PictureLink Mugshot System.
Aurora Police Department's booking process is similar to Austin PD and Baytown PD in that it interfaces with the city’s existing Versadex records management system. This makes mugshots taken in PictureLink available in the Versadex system's data record.
Additionally, Aurora PD has implemented the web based version of Picturelink that allows arrest data and mugshots to be accessed via the internet. This repository allows investigators and patrol officers to create lineups, print forms, and perform mobile lookups.

Dynamic Imaging Systems is proud to announce that Baytown Police Department, TX has replaced their existing PSP Image Bank mugshot system with the PictureLink Mugshot System and implemented both NIST Repository and PositiveID+ Biometric applications.
The Baytown Police Department’s implementation of PictureLink included several interfaces to help streamline their booking process and reduce the amount of duplicate entry that existed in their previous system.
Similar to Austin PD (TX), Baytown enters booking data into the city’s Versadex records management system which is subsequently pulled into PictureLink using the included Datalink graphical user interface. This makes the record available for image capture using PictureLinks advanced mugshot imaging module.
After the booking is completed, the mugshot and associated data is sent to the agencies Printrak Livescan System using a Dynamic Imaging interface that removes the need to re-enter duplicate information or take a second mugshot photo. This interface reduces the errors during data entry and allows Picturelinks high quality photos to be used for their state required NIST files.
After the subject is fingerprinted using the Printrak system a copy of the NIST file containing arrest data, images and fingerprints is sent to the state, the city’s AFIS Tracker system and to a second Dynamic Imaging interface. This interface unpacks the NIST file and makes it available to Dynamic Imaging Systems NSIT Repository and PositiveID+ applications.

Dynamic Imaging Systems released a new facial recognition module within its PositiveID+ biometrics application. The addition of facial recognition in the 4.7 version of PositiveID+ brings fingerprint and facial identification together under one application. This enables an Agency to utilize both fingerprints and faces to help identify and investigate subjects. Agencies that own or purchase the PositiveID+ system can use the law enforcment facial recognition component at no additional licensing or software charges. Also, existing face images can be enrolled into the system to support immediate use of the facial recognition tool as part of booking and investigative functions.
A mobile facial recognition app for law enforcement is also being offered to turn any camera-enabled cell phone into a powerful mobile recognition tool. The software enables end users to use their Blackberry/Droid/iPhone cell phones to capture a face image and submit it to the Agency’s PositiveID+ server. The incoming image is sent to the PositiveID+ search engine to identify possible matches and the search results are returned within moments. Search results can be viewed right on the officer’s mobile phone, forwarded to investigative personnel, or reviewed back in the office from any web browser. Mobile facial recognition using our innovative application is a powerful capability that makes it easy for officers to work in the field.
