CONTEXT:

Iris recognition is a method of biometric authentication that uses pattern recognition techniques
based on high
-
resolution images of the irises of an individual’s eyes. Iris recognition uses camera
technology,

to

create rich images of the iris,

the colored

membrane that regulates how much light
enters the eye.

Iris recognition is another method of ensuring the identity of individuals
.


When a suspect is taken into custody at the New York Police Department, their fingerprints, mug
shots, and
photographs

of their irises will be taken. These images will help to avoid cases of
mistaken identity. Suspects’ irises will be scanned using handheld devices when they are
arrested and again shortly before they are arraigned to make sure the irises match.


Packages
of the software, the handheld devices and cameras cost $24,000 each
. Central
booking in Manhattan
will be

taking photos this Monday of suspects; there will be 21 systems in
use around New York City later on this year.

Prevention Relevance

The iris of the eye is the ideal part of the human body for biometric identification. It is an internal
organ that is highly protected against damage and wear, has a fine texture that is determined
randomly during pregnancy
, and this fine texture remains s
table for periods over 30 years; all
factors that contribute to irises successfully identifying individuals.


Prevention Techniques

Iris Recognition is used to authenticate identity and avoid mistaken cases of identity among crime
suspects.


Prevention Tho
ught

[Risk Management
:]

Iris recognition is very difficult to perform at a distance
,

or if
th
e person being
photographed

will not cooperate by holding the
ir

head st
ill and looking into the camera. What do
you do then?

how do you photograph the iris?
