South Sound 911 Implements PictureLink Mugshot System

by Dynamic Imaging Systems October 1, 2013

Dynamic Imaging Systems was selected to provide a regional mugshot repository and local mugshot booking capture stations for South Sound 911, a public safety consortium in Pierce County, WA  that provides technology services for its law enforcement member cities.

South Sound 911 sought to replace their aging Imageware mugshot system to meet upcoming CJIS requirements for enhanced mugshot quality, security and investigative sharing capabilities.  To meet these requirements Dynamic Imaging Systems provided five web-based PictureLink Mugshot digital camera capture stations that automatically capture NIST compliant photos with minimal user intervention.  New arrests captured at each agency are subsequently submitted to the shared system and made available to law enforcement personnel for searches, photo lineups, and digital mugbooks.  Photos are captured according to the ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2011 level 40 specifications to satisfy South Sound 911’s request to meet upcoming CJIS requirements for high resolution mugshot images.  In addition, the PictureLink system performs image quality checks to ensure that photos submitted from each facility have consistent brightness, background color and head size.

Dynamic Imaging Systems also provided booking interfaces to support Pierce County, Puyallup and Fife Jails.  Each interface was designed to eliminate double entry between the agencies existing jail system by importing arrest data into the PictureLink system prior to mugshot capture. This has reduced the chance of costly data entry mistakes while helping to speed up the booking process.

In addition to the primary booking database, South Sound 911 required standalone databases for Sex Offender registrants and employees.  Each database is restricted to specific agency personnel and included custom built forms for photo and data print outs.
