Overview Edit

The Enforcement Automated Biometric Identification System (WebIDENT) is

an application that is used to capture fingerprints and photographs during the arrest and booking of subjects by ICE, CBP, and U.S. Coast Guard law enforcement personnel. WebIDENT submits the fingerprints and photographs to the US-VISIT IDENT biometric database and submits fingerprints to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) database for storage and for fingerprint-based criminal records checks.[1] WebIDENT receives and displays the results of fingerprint searches against IDENT and IAFIS and has the ability to retrieve additional information from U.S. Department of State (DOS) databases pertaining to visa issuance and passport data based off of the fingerprint match. For arrests entered through EABM, IDENT sends WebIDENT the Fingerprint Identification Number for the subject, which is then stored in the subject's EID record.[2]
