Since 9/11, Arizona and federal law enforcement agencies understand the need to improve subject identification capabilities and integrate criminal information across jurisdictions. Agencies still collect information based on a subject's name and demographics for identification. Using a subject's name and demographics as keys to identifying information is a weakness. In 2012, Arizona will upgrade the state's strategic plan to allow law enforcement officers to use biometrics technology to verify a subjects' identity at first point of contact and implement information sharing capability across the state, border states, and federal agencies. This thesis presents a technology framework for strategic planning that includes biometrics identification technology, information sharing capability, and a governance structure for oversight. Through researching implementations in Los Angeles County, California and the states Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Vermont a comparative analysis revealed similarities in each implementation that will be used in developing an Arizona technology framework. Biometrics identification and information sharing is critical for supporting security along the U.S. border with Mexico. This thesis addresses expansion of the technology framework to align with the FBI's Repository for Individuals of Special Concern, initiatives to gain access to identification information from Central American countries and programs developed during the border governors' conferences with Mexico.
