Law Enforcement

Public law and order is essential in ensuring that citizens and investors feel safe. This is an area in which NEC has many decades of experience working with the police, prisons and judicial systems of different countries in Asia and around the world.

One key technology offered by NEC is an automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS). Fast and accurate (the speed of NEC’s biometrics algorithms has been recognized by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology), NEC’s AFIS has been deployed in over 30 countries. Together with NEC’s facial recognition system, NEC is able to provide a solution that law enforcement officials rely upon to manage physical access, identify criminals and exonerate the innocent.


NEC has worked for decades with law enforcement agencies around the world to help keep cities and countries safe. Most countries register the fingerprints of criminals into a database so that these criminals can be identified if their prints are found in subsequent crime scenes.

NEC's fast and accurate automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS) technology has assisted law enforcement agencies worldwide in the apprehension and conviction of thousands of criminals. An integrated law enforcement environment that helps to reduce risk, protect the officers, and boost productivity can be achieved by applying biometrics technologies in public safety.

NEC's AFIS promises supreme accuracy, speed and flexibility which enable law enforcement agencies to do their jobs more efficiently.  NEC is a world leader in integrated solutions and the only company with the expertise to deliver the hardware, software and services of the world's top-notched biometric solutions.


For prisons, NEC has a facility management system that handles the challenging task of monitoring the prison population. The system brings together different solutions to bear on this multi-faceted problem. Relying on the biometric ID of inmates, the system can record attendance or be used for clocking in and out. Special properties such as tattoos and scars can also be incorporated into the system.

The solution adopts multi-biometric technologies to verify the identities of inmates and jail visitors. Jail ID confirms the inmate’s identity during the pre-booking process, prior to release, and monitors facility transfers reliably. In addition, the identities of jail visitors are also validated with biometrics prior to contact with inmates wherein criminal background checks are performed. Jail ID is a modular security solution that can be connected to NEC's Integrated Security Management solution, which provides centralized management of access control, CCTV cameras and facility alarms.
