13th Annual Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement

February 27, 2019 - March 1, 2019

The Biometrics for Government & Law Enforcement 2019 event will be held February 27 – March 1, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

This 3-day gathering brings together government and industry experts at the forefront of developing the next generation of analytics-based biometrics to discuss the advances in biometric technology to better meet law enforcement and national security priorities.
