JERICHO, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The police department of one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. has equipped its Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) officers with Intellicheck’s (NYSE MKT:IDN) Age ID™ to enhance the enforcement of laws and regulations that prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages and other age restricted products, such as tobacco, to minors. The state-of-the-art technology solution is used to scan bar codes on driver licenses and other forms of government-issued identification to spot altered and fake IDs.
With more than 1.5 million visitors every year and an explosion in the city’s residential growth, this large metropolitan police department is responsible for the enforcement of the southeast city’s state alcoholic beverage control laws. Its enforcement efforts include restaurants, bars, clubs, grocery stores and every retail outlet that sells alcoholic products, with special attention directed toward the possession and use of alcohol by underage persons. Equipped with Age ID, ABC officers no longer have to experience the time-consuming and lengthy delays associated with contacting dispatch to authenticate IDs. During busy times, like Friday and Saturday nights, delays in receiving information can be formidable.
“I believe Age ID is making a critical difference in communities across the country. With Age ID’s new, expanded capabilities and increased efficiency, law enforcement organizations are better able to address the key challenges presented by underage drinking and enforcement, despite the constraints of limited budgets and growing demands for resources,” said Intellicheck CEO Dr. William Roof. He noted that Age ID has wide applications beyond brick and mortar retail establishments. “Vendors use our industry-leading technology solution at events where age restricted products such as alcohol, tobacco or cannabis are sold. Age ID also quickly and accurately authenticates IDs of individuals accepting deliveries of age-restricted products at their homes or other locations where adults might not be present. Businesses that fail to positively authenticate their customers’ identification credentials may have much to lose. They may face significant penalties that can include fines, license suspension or loss of license to operate,” Dr. Roof explained.
Age ID can be deployed on mobile devices including smartphones, laptops and tablets. The technology solution draws on a comprehensive proprietary database, updated on an ongoing basis, to ensure ID authentication is timely and accurate. It provides the most up-to-date solution to the problem of spotting fake and altered IDs with its ability to read a substantial number of known fake barcodes and unique DMV barcode formats from every U.S. state and populated territory, all Canadian provinces, and all Mexican States where driver licenses include 2-D barcodes.
