Enabling security officers to perform real-time identification operations in the field


One of the top priorities for law enforcement officers is to safeguard the community. An important means to achieve this mission is to provide officers with advanced mobile tools and equipment that will help them conduct identification on the beat. IDEMIA has developed a truly mobile solution for both person identification and ID document check.

RapID3 is the third generation of rugged, handheld biometric devices, designed for law enforcement, border control, and civil and immigration officers who need to have autonomous operational capabilities in the palm of their hands.
