April 2010

On April 10th, Corporal Douglas Maifeld did a Child ID with the use of
the IRIS scan at the Rumford Eagle's Club for their Kids Fest
"Child Advocacy"
. The event was a success with 21 new enrollments.
This was the sixth event that the Rumford Police Department has used the IRIS Scan.
The equipment is intended for use on children or the elderly with the purpose of
locating missing children and adults. The IRIS Scan is a new procedure that takes
an image of a childs eye and it gets saved in to a national database.
No two eyes are like just like your fingerprints. The only difference is your eyes
have more identifying marks then your fingerprints and are easier to access than
your fingerprints. For more information about this technology please visit the
follwoing two links: BI2 Technologies. and The Child Project.
