In Pennsylvania, Byrne JAG funds provide support for the development and deployment of the Mobile ID Gateway System. Mobile ID facilitates Rapid Fingerprint Identification Search submissions and searches. The Mobile ID Gateway enables the State Police to digitize, store, and retrieve fingerprint records and case documents on-demand and provides law enforcement agencies with services to instantly assess threat levels. Funds support the State Police’s procurement of approximately 100 Mobile ID devices pre-loaded with the necessary software. "The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association through a grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency’s Local Technology Workgroup and in cooperation with the Pennsylvania State Police is providing Mobile ID equipment to police departments to conduct fingerprint searches from the field."
