JERICHO, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The state liquor and cannabis board of a large West Coast state is equipping its enforcement officers across the state with Intellicheck's (NYSE MKT:IDN) industry-leading Age ID™ technology solution to prevent the sale of age restricted products including cannabis, alcohol and tobacco, to minors. Age ID will be on the job with 80 of the state’s enforcement officers who will use the smart phone app to scan driver licenses and other forms of identification to catch altered and fake IDs.
“Technical advances and persistent, increasing ID counterfeiting operations at home and abroad are flooding our country with extremely realistic fake IDs. Outdated methods, such as relying on a visual inspection or inspecting the ID etchings and holograms with light, are subject to human error and can be totally ineffective. Inexpensive fake IDs, typically purchased online in minutes, pose serious threats to businesses and to the law enforcement community. Access to alcohol or cannabis by minors using fake IDs is more than a business concern. This is a concern for families, friends and neighbors who worry that one wrong decision by a young person can have tragic results that last a lifetime. We welcome this new partnership and are confident that Age ID will have the same exceptional impact for these law enforcement officials that it has for our other enforcement partners in many states and communities. We also expect that exposure to and subsequent adoption of Age ID by retailers in this state will help them experience a dramatic improvement in their ongoing efforts to keep age restricted products out of the hands of minors,” said Intellicheck CEO Dr. William Roof.
This West Coast state’s enforcement officers’ duties include undercover operations, premises visits and compliance checks to enforce laws and regulations governing the sale of alcohol, cannabis and tobacco. Enforcement officers are based at offices located across the state to cover a broad territory and numerous responsibilities, which also include permitting, education and training.
Age ID is the state-of-the-art technology solution that can be deployed on mobile devices including smartphones, laptops and tablets as well as integrated at the point of sale. The economical, easy-to-use technology solution provides real-time results drawing on a comprehensive proprietary database, updated on an ongoing basis, to ensure ID authentication is accurate. Age ID provides the most up-to-date solution to the problem of spotting fake and altered IDs with its ability to read an exceptional 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.
