How would a deputy know if the name a subject was providing to him was really the correct name? If this person had an outstanding warrant, would he tend to provide the correct identification? Chances are he might not.
Now Highlands County sheriff’s deputies have the solution. They can simply call the sergeant on duty in their zone and have him run Rapid ID on subjects. Identification is confirmed. The rules of search and seizure still apply with the use of these devices, however, any tool given to our deputies to expedite identification in the field leads to efficiencies but most importantly to the safety of our deputies. They can quickly determine whom they are really dealing with on the street under the proper circumstances.
