Indian school installs biometrics to protect students

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Jul 27, 2010  ||   

Bright Way College in Jankipuram in India has implemented a system developed by biometrics developer GI Biometric Solutions in hopes of better protecting its students from being sent home with people that are not supposed to be picking up the children, such as kidnappers, according to a Times of India article.

The system was put into place following an incident where one of the school’s primary students returned to school crying following the end of school saying someone had come to take him home pretending to be a friend of his father’s.

Officials from GI Biometrics cited incidents as this as the driving force behind the development of their software that now serves the Bright Way College. Enrollment into the system requires thumbprints from each guardian of a child and digital photos of each guardian and the child so that when a guardian scans his or her thumb, it brings up their picture and the picture of their child.

While the time it takes to get all the students out after school has quadrupled, school officials take solace in the increased safety of its student population.
