Law Enforcement Intelligent Devices will install its locker system and Biometric

Access Control System (BACS) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human

Services’ National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD.  The locker system

will support the NIH’s entire police force that is responsible for protecting our nation’s

medical research agency.  The project is expected to be completed in

February 2010.

Developed by Patti Engineering, BACS secures, tracks

(via RFID), and provides full accountability for critical assets.  The NIH

officer’s equipment and/or weapons now will be marked with an RFID chip

linked to the kiosk. The user logs into the BACS application to access

equipment by placing their finger on the biometric reader for verification.

Then the user selects the authorized equipment and/or weapon listed on the

touch screen, which is then retrieved from a secure locker.

Law enforcement departments throughout the country are using the system

to allow for full accountability of their armory and a credible history

report that links officers to their assigned equipment.  

Based in Auburn Hill, Michigan, Patti Engineering ( develops

information and electrical control systems used for retail distribution,

manufacturing plants, water/theme parks, libraries, law enforcement,

military, municipalities, waste water, food industry, ice arenas, and
