Mug Shot - Digital Imaging

If your agency implements, or plans to implement, RIMS Records Management, consider adding Mug Shot/Digital Imaging as well. While many mug shot systems can easily cost $30,000 to $50,000, ours is designed to be inexpensive to install and operate. With a price range from $2,000-$10,000, not including cameras, the RIMS system beats the competitors on cost, performance and overall value.
With RIMS Mug Shot/Digital Imaging system you can keep a visual record of arrestees, property, crime scenes, buildings and even pets. Pictures are taken with a digital camera and transferred into RIMS, or you can choose to scan the photos into RIMS directly. Combine with Mobile Computing and see how beneficial it can be to transmit images electronically to police vehicles. Or, use it in conjunction with InCustody™ to create a photographic record of all inmates. The possibilities are endless.


When mug shots are created, photos are directly linked to the person’s master name record in the RIMS Records Management System.
