The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office in Akron, Ohio, has acquired DataWorks Plus’ Evolution 3 fingerprint scanning technology to improve the speed and accuracy of identifying the deceased. The smartphone-based device captures a deceased individual’s fingerprints and attempts to match them against criminal databases from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the FBI in as little as two minutes. This new technology helps the county provide closure to families and friends of the deceased.

“The families definitely get anxious waiting to hear,” said Dr. Lisa Kohler, Summit County Medical Examiner. “For us to be able to say in a much faster turnaround time that ‘yes, we have found your loved one’…it makes a big difference.”

Since adopting the technology in September 2023, the devices have aided in the positive identification of over 17 decedents.

“DataWorks Plus is proud of the work that we are doing in partnership with Integrated Biometrics to help our valued customers like Summit County better serve their community,” said Brad Bylenga, CEO, DataWorks Plus. “It is awesome to see our mobile Evolution device in action.”

“We’re pleased to be a part of DataWorks Plus’ biometric solutions,” said David Gerulski, EVP, Integrated Biometrics. “The Evolution product is used by some our largest US state and local law enforcement agencies for rapid in-the-field mobile identification.”
