February 23, 2018 9:30 AM

BiH will modernize the AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification) / APIS (Automated Palmprint Identification) system, which will secure more efficient work and cooperation of security agencies in our country, as stated from the Ministry of Security of BiH.

Moreover, with the establishment of a new AFIS, BiH will comply with the system of EU countries, which has the possibility of international data exchange and strengthening of cross-border cooperation, especially when it comes to fight against terrorism and cross-border crime.

Users of AFIS system are the State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA), the Border Police of BiH, the Agency for Forensic Examination and Expertise, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the RS, the Ministry of the Internal Affairs of the FBiH, the Police of Brcko District and ten cantonal ministries of internal affairs, whose representatives signed a Memorandum on cooperation.

The Ministry of Security of BiH is the owner of the system and it will give a support to competent police agencies through the accommodation and maintenance of the servers.

This also represents a precondition for the procurement of equipment for the AFIS system, whose value amounts to 7 million BAM from IPA program.

“This is a very powerful tool in the hands of the police, and it will provide a great help in cases of detecting and illuminating different criminal offenses,” said Minister Dragan Mektic.
