  • Rapid ID




    Fingerprints plus Bluetooth technology equals a name to a face. That is what Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies are utilizing to make identification of subjects who refuse to say who they are or give false names. The system is called RAPID ID. It is portable and powerful and provides law enforcement deputies with almost instant access to local, state and federal fingerprint databases. RAPID ID is also helpful in making an identification of people with dementia or mental issues or those who have sustained trauma or injury and cannot communicate. Using a federal grant, HCSO began distributing the devices, which resemble a TV remote, in the fall of 2013. More than 700 devices will ultimately be available for use by our deputies.
