Fulcrum Biometrics Wins Awards from Cygnus Law Enforcement Group

Fulcrum (News - Alert) Biometrics, a provider of biometric systems and devices has received two awards from Cygnus Law Enforcement Group, a law enforcement community.

The Cygnus Law Enforcement Group’s Forensics and Paramount Award recognizes the most innovative single product or service under the new law enforcement product category introduced in 2011. The group announced these awards at the 118th International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference and exhibition in Chicago.

Fulcrum Biometrics won these awards for the company's FbF mobileOne, a biometric fingerprint accessory that snaps onto iOS devices such as the iPod Touch and iPhone (News - Alert).

 “The law enforcement community is very interested in the new products that rise to the top every year,” said Patrick Bernardo, brand director for Cygnus Law Enforcement Group, in a statement. “They’re always looking for the equipment that will make law enforcers’ duties easier, and their time on the streets better managed and safer.”

An independent panel of twelve veteran law enforcement professionals judged the 2011 award winners. The panel of judges evaluated products in 13 different categories for innovativeness, productivity, quality contribution, ease of use and maintainability.

“We are honored to receive these two significant awards from the law enforcement community,” said Ken Nosker, president of Fulcrum Biometrics. “Fulcrum has been working in the biometrics space for nearly 10 years. This has given us a high degree of visibility into emerging trends in the industry.”

FbF mobileOne received the Innovation Award in the Forensics category. Other categories included: Body Armor & Safety, Communications, Computers, Corrections & Security, Firearms & Weapons, Firearms & Weapons Accessories, Software, Surveillance, Tactical, Traffic Enforcement, Training, Uniforms & Apparel, and Vehicles & Vehicle Accessories.

Recently, Fulcrum Biometrics announced the launch of FbF Timeclock, a new desktop biometric time and attendance system developed in partnership with Legiant, a major player leader in workforce management software.
