Law Enforcement Intelligent Devices will install its locker system and Biometric
Access Control System (BACS) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services' National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD. The locker system
will support the NIH's entire police force that is responsible for protecting our nation's
medical research agency. The project is expected to be completed in
Developed by Patti Engineering, BACS secures, tracks
(via RFID), and provides full accountability for critical assets. The NIH
officer's equipment and/or weapons now will be marked with an RFID chip
linked to the kiosk. The user logs into the BACS application to access
equipment by placing their finger on the biometric reader for verification.
Then the user selects the authorized equipment and/or weapon listed on the
touch screen, which is then retrieved from a secure locker.
Law enforcement departments throughout the country are using the system
to allow for full accountability of their armory and a credible history
report that links officers to their assigned equipment.
