The ID system collects names and date-of-birth information each time it scans a government-issued identification card.
The system then compares the names and birth dates against Raptor’s national sex offenders’ database. If it finds a confirmed match, the ID database sends an e-mail alert to designated district staff, administrators and law enforcement officers assigned to each school.
The ID card scan system was designed to keep kids safe. The Visitor management software conducts each check in less than 30 seconds and captures the photograph on the identification card for use on a Expiring School Badge for each visitor. The ID system then stores the data and photograph so visitors don’t have to scan their identification cards on each trip to a local school. However, it runs a new check against the sex offenders’ database each time it issues a visitor’s pass.
