Biometric fingerprint identification terminals developed by French security giant Morpho have been supplied to nine Turkish police stations.Operated with local partner Olcsan, the projects involves SIGMA fingerprint terminals that are to be used to control people under probation.During a registration phase, a probationer's fingerprints are captured using a MorphoSmart 1300 sensor. The inmates released under probation who were obliged to give wet signature will now go to police stations and have their fingerprints verified by “Olcsan's K!M pozitif Biometric Identification Management System” using MorphoAccess SIGMA terminals.Thus, control is made electronically, without the need for policeman supervision. The MorphoAccess SIGMA terminals can also display on their screen specific messages to the probationer as soon as he is identified (e.g. to inform him about his next appointment within a rehabilitation program).The “Probation Tracking Project”, called DESTAP (Denetimli Serbestlik Takip Projesi) in Turkish, is currently used successfully in nine selected police stations in Konya. It was deployed with the contribution of Konya Police Department, under the supervision of the Ministry of Justice.A press conference to launch the project took place in May in the Courthouse of Konya in the presence of the Governor of Konya, Muammer Erol, the President of Regional Administrative Court, Kemal Kuku, and the President of the Justice Commission Nuri Kocer.More Morpho terminals will be deployed soon in other districts of Konya located in the center/south of Turkey: Kulu, Cihanbeyli, Kadınhanı and Çumra. DESTAP in Konya is a pilot project.
