The FBI Criminal Justice Information Services Division held a special meeting on Thursday to help introduce one of it's own.
 
Assistant Director Stephen Morris announced his plans in helping to move the division forward. Morris says the division here in Bridgeport is much more than just a fingerprint identification place.
 
Morris say biometrics is the leading technology that the center is now focusing on. New plans are in the works to even build a Biometrics Technology Center on the campus. This will help house all the new developments under one roof and should be completed within a year.
 
Morris says biometrics will help them better identify people in ways they never could have before.
 
"Biometrics are coming into the every day discussion. The utility and application of biometrics in law enforcement and national security puts us right in the square in the middle of that. We are at the tip of the spear when it comes to biometrics," said Morris.
 
The FBI employs around 2,500 people here in our area.  It's the largest division in the FBI. Morris says he is excited to help develop new and enhanced security strategies and measures.
