IJIS Institute created a new Biometrics Task Force to address the issues around and improve the awareness of biometrics technology, policy, privacy, ethics issues, interoperability, best practices and success stories within the context of public safety, criminal justice and government-sector business processes.

The task force will be jointly managed with IJIS Institute’s strategic partner, International Biometrics + Identity Association, which will provide a co-chair for the task force and support the group’s work with expertise and resources.

The IJIS Institute chair of this new Biometrics Task Force is Benji Hutchison, vice president of federal operations, Advanced Recognition Systems Division, NEC Corp. of America.

The Biometrics Task Force will create the framework for driving future discussions on the use of biometrics-related technologies in the public safety, criminal justice and government sectors. The task force will create information resources for executive and policymakers, identify policy guidelines for implementation, identify requirements to address interoperability challenges, and collect and disseminate best practices on biometrics technology use. A key focus of the task force will be research and identification of benefits and challenges associated with public-sector biometrics technology use, and identification of strategies associated with those challenges.
