Identity? There’s an app for that

Brockton police officers are being issued with heavily-modified iPhones that are equipped with facial recognition, fingerprint scanners, and — get this — iris recognition. The phones, which should cost about US $3,000, would be used to allow for positive identification in the field, as opposed to hauling suspects all the way down to the station to verify their identity and arrest record.

The system is called MORIS (Mobile Offender Recognition and Identification System).
