NEC helps the police solve crimes as well as enhance civil services [5:03]

Movie script

Brasília is the capital of the Federative Republic of Brazil and is located within the Federal District. It was inaugurated in 1960 according to an urban and architectural master plan of international recognition. In the early years after the city´s settlement, the Civil Police of the Federal District was inaugurated. The Institute of Identification, a section of the Civil Police and a world wide reference in technology now, performs civil and criminal identifications, issue identification documents and also carry out fingerprint expert investigations.

With the population increase,services which were carried out manually by the Institute of Identification didn’t meet the demand. This placed both citizenship and the process of collecting accurate evidences that supports the legal system at risk. The challenge was to modernize the system,through the deployment of a technology able to identify and match people by their fingerprints quickly and accurately with the millions of records.

NEC's AFIS - Automated Fingerprint Identification System was the answer, offering a complete solution with specialized software,training and support services, including the system maintenance after deployment.

Nadiel Dias da Costa (Joint Director of the Institute of Identification Civil Police of the Federal District):
We conclude that NEC has become a major partner of the Institute of Identification.

Massato Takakuwa (Business Director Brazil - NEC Latin America):
We are very proud to be taking part on a project of this type, which has two very important aspects. One of them is the civilian application of this tool. After all, the AFIS collects the fingerprint, creates a database and makes the identity card issuance easier with no fraud or any other kind of problem, and the other aspect is the criminal application. By using this same database and latents that are the fragmented fingerprints, we manage to solve crimes. This process of exchanging ideas and having feedback of what has been discussed, enabled us to move a very large universe of professionals, including people from Argentina and Japan.

The system was implemented in three steps:
Conversion of three million fingerprint cards into a format compatible with AFIS.
Installation and integration of the equipment, including setting up of matching and processing servers, and overall system tuning.
Training of users.

With over 40 years of experience in R&D and deployment worldwide, the unique AFIS technology of NEC provides unparalleled accuracy and speed of identification.

NEC's AFIS is scalable and flexible. It complies with the ANSI NIST standards, and is able to communicate with other systems that comply with these standards.

Martín Arouxet (Biometrics Product Development Manager NEC Argentina):
This quality is now brought to the Institute of Identification of the Civil Police of the Federal District.

Nadiel Dias da Costa (Joint Director of the Institute of Identification Civil Police of the Federal District):
In the area of civil identification, we beat the service records of all times. In the criminal area, in an operation aimed at working with homicides, rapes, robberies, we scanned our databases in 8 days resulting in 111 positive identifications. After that we worked with an operation focused on theft and robbery, in 22 days of work, we solved 440 cases.

Massato Takakuwa (Business Director Brazil - NEC Latin America):
This partnership that we had with the Civil Police has helped us to improve the system that was already considered very good.

Carlos César de Sousa Saraiva (Director of the Institute of Identification Civil Police of the Federal District):
It is not enough just having the best system. You have to be willing to build in this system into the actual operations as best as you possibly can. There is no other way to make this project a success beyond having a good partnership.

This strong partnership has created the best conditions to deliver a service that enhances security, justice, and the feeling of citizenship.
