The state’s law enforcing system has received a big boost as The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) goes for a system upgrade for its fingerprint system.

Thanks to a contract with MorphoTrak, part of Morpho, TBI is on its way to modernize its fingerprint identification system. As part of the contract, MorphoTrak will upgrade TBI’s existing fingerprint system. The upgraded system will feature the Morpho Biometric Identification Solution (MorphoBIS) and is expected to produce the top matching accuracy comparable to the FBI’s NGI system.


Armed with the most advanced matching algorithms, as well as greater fingerprint database capacity, the upgraded system from MorphoTrak will make the entire process of searching, matching, identifying, and verifying fingerprints lot easier by making it speedier and more accurate.

The system will also allow the TBI investigators to check if a DNA sample is required during a criminal charge booking.

Furthermore, the new system allows TBI to easily and cost-effectively incorporate additional biometrics such as face, tattoo, and iris recognition, as needed.

“TBI has made an investment in Morpho public safety technology that will translate into more crimes being solved, more offenders off the streets, and improved public safety. The service-oriented architecture (SOA) employed by MorphoBIS make it easily fit into our IT architecture and provides scalability to future-proof our investment,” director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Mark Gwyn noted in a statement.

MorphoTrak ‘s biometric and identity management solutions are being used by a broad array of organizations in the U.S. including law enforcement, border control, driver licenses, civil identification, and facility/IT security. Its products are used by more than 450 government agencies in over 100 countries.

“We are proud of our long-term partnership with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. TBI and the citizens of Tennessee will benefit from the most accurate and productive fingerprint identification system in the industry,” president and CEO of MorphoTrak Daniel Vassy commented ina statement.

Few months back, Morpho announced that the Massachusetts State Police has selected its U.S. subsidiary, MorphoTrak, to provide MorphoBIS, its next generation Biometric Identification System, for the Commonwealth's new statewide system.
