The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office unveiled its newest weapon in the fight against crime Thursday – iris-recognition technology. Pinal County is the first law-enforcement agency in Arizona to implement the Inmate Recognition & Identification System (IRIS).
Chief Deputy Steve Henry showed Javier Soto how it works.
IRIS will be used to enroll and identify every inmate in the Pinal County Jail, which is a 1,500-bed facility. It will also be used to register, track and monitor the county’s more than 700 convicted sex offenders.
