Project Overview: The Science and Technology Directorate Command, Control and Interoperability Division (CID) funded the development of the Wireless Federated Query for handheld devices that can retrieve digital photographs from the California Department of Motor Vehicles. This new application enables law enforcement personnel who are away from their office or vehicle to quickly query, retrieve, and view California driver license photographs via a range of handheld personal digital assistant devices. This new capability greatly enhances practitioners' ability to positively identify individuals in the field in real time. The new handheld application was certified by the California Department of Justice. Nearly 300 local, state, and federal law enforcement personnel throughout Southern California are currently participating in its operational testing. This project is part of the Knowledge Management Tools program area of CID.
