with the use of the IRIS scan at the Rumford Eagle's Club for their

This was the seventh event that the Rumford Police Department has used the IRIS Scan
and this was near record enrollments. 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 persons 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 twelve times more identifying marks then
your fingerprints and are easier to access than your fingerprints.
