Top Interpol officials have said that governments must routinely use biometrics and the international police body's stolen and lost travel document database to ensure the safety of passengers.Speaking in Singapore at an Interpol conference, director of operational police support, Michael O'Connell said criminals are still capable of exploiting cracks and loopholes in the travel security system.”Despite extraordinary efforts to provide safe and secure air travel and better identify passengers, the danger remains as evident as it is before,” he said.Security solutions provider Entrust Datacard director of product management, Mark Joynes, said at the conference that as of March last year, over 40 million travel documents were lost or stolen.Last January, Entrust Datacard, a provider of secure ID and card personalization solutions, partnered with Morpho (Safran), a leading provider of secure biometric identification solutions, to support the INTERPOL Travel Document Initiative. Morpho is providing the secure ID management and document production solution used by INTERPOL in the issuance of electronic travel documents to its officials.
