AFIS Project Description Modernize Connecticut’s Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), replacing the current system with a new, state of the art Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) that meets Connecticut’s criminal justice community and private citizens future criminal identification needs 2

AFIS Modernization Business Drivers Aging System System has reached storage and processing capacity limits Major component hardware unsupported Underlying ORACLE software unsupported 3M system software several generations behind latest available technology New system estimated to take 18 to 24 months to complete The current interfaces have design limitations that have promoted the growth of unlinked arrests and criminal history records (“suspense”) Limited ability to identify unsolved latent prints due to limits on palm storage, processing, search functions and the ability to properly display search target areas for comparison Current system unable to fully participate in the federal governments’ recent upgrade to Next Generation Identification (NGI) modes Inability to fully participate in Federal Rap back program Continued non-compliance with the statutorily mandated participation in the 3 National Fingerprint File (NFF), a fundamental component of Connecticut’s adoption of The National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact

AFIS Modernization Technology Drivers Obsolete technology Current system is 10 years old and desperately needs to be upgraded Current software is several generations behind latest technology System capacity limits have been reached: Programmable Matching Accelerator(PMA) 94% capacity currently 128 GB, 224 GB with upgrade. Anticipated time to end of life 6 months, Storage Area Network(SAN) currently 19 TB, 22TB with upgrade, anticipated time to maximum storage 12 months AFIS system interfaces Current AFIS interface with Computerized Criminal History(CCH) contributes to unlinked arrest and criminal history information Court dispositions are not updated within the AFIS Current AFIS lacks next generation biometric modes Facial, iris, tattoo and other body image storage and identification capabilities 4 Ability to align with Federal governments recent upgrade to Next Generation Identification (NGI) capabilities

AFIS Modernization Benefits The AFIS project will benefit DESPP, various state agencies, municipal PDs and the citizens of Connecticut by providing: The upgraded ABIS in combination with an updated Computerized Criminal History(CCH) will enable the State to attain National Fingerprint File (NFF) compliance NFF compliance eliminates the redundancy of the States maintenance and update of record information with the FBI Participation enables an identification response with complete records held at the state level Improved identification capabilities Increased unsolved latent identifications, a result of storage and search capacity improvements Next generation identification modes including facial, iris, tattoo and other body part images Ability to search the National Mug Shot Repository against suspect images Improved integration with key Criminal Justice Information System(CJIS) systems such as COLLECT, Special Licensing Weapons Registration System 5 (SLWRS), Court Operations, and Connecticut Information Sharing
