Handheld e-id titles control solution, a new approach
The introduction of electronic identity titles (e-passports, national e-id cards) offers the opportunity to increase the capacity of “outdoor control” by law enforcement agencies and police forces.
But we feel that instead of focusing on the actual needs of the police forces of the different countries, the offer is more often than not built on the needs expressed by other users such as military forces or other specific players.
We will try to draw a picture of the fundamental question that all law enforcement agency or police force should answer before defining their requirements regarding handheld identity control devices.
Each police force has many missions, a specific organization and works in a unique legal frame, as well as in a specific geographical environment.
Each country has its own approach regarding personal data, has issued its own identity titles and its specific political frame.
We will also look at the economics of the global control system, from the device to the system, drawing a total cost of ownership approach.
Our last point will be to emphasize the need to adopt a practical view of the identity control, by avoiding the lure of the do-it-all solution and reminding that we are very often in a visual control configuration as of yet.
