3M Cogent Mugshot System - CMS
Available from 3M Cogent, Inc.
3M Cogent’s CMS provides a Web-based, service-oriented, modular mugshot photo investigative tool for law enforcement agencies. With its user friendly navigation, users can easily create and edit lineups, mug books, and booking records.
Law enforcement agencies can securely access the CMS database and search for suspects immediately from the crime scene or patrol car through a standard Web browser; no dedicated software is needed. Running on a commercially available backend server, CMS uses a NIST standard interface that seamlessly integrates with 3M Cogent’s products, third-party AFISes, and LiveScan systems.
CMS lets the user search for candidates using a list of basic criteria or through an advanced query tool, providing a high degree of flexibility to conduct searches or comparison. Lineups can be viewed on-screen or printed, while mug books can be viewed on-screen securely through a “witness mode”. CMS also allows the user to create suspect records, lineups, wanted posters, and investigation activity logging.
CMS is available as part of a complete booking system or as a standalone mugshot information system. Customized integration with 3M Cogent’s AFIS and LiveScan products allow agencies to tailor a system to meet their operational requirements. By sharing a common database structure, redundant data entry is virtually eliminated at sites where the system is purchased as a complement to existing booking systems.
