Mollie Halpern: New technology is providing the FBI and its law enforcement partners more tools to catch the bad guys.
Stephen Morris: It’s one of the largest—if not the largest—information technology systems within the U.S. Department of Justice. In fact, we know it is the largest biometrically based criminal history record system in the world.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau, and this is FBI, This Week. Next Generation Identification, or NGI, is a state-of-the-art identification system.

Morris: By leveraging new technology within NGI, we’re not only able to identify criminals more accurately and more efficiently, we’re also able to do it in a way that better preserves and protects our civil liberties.
Halpern: NGI has been deployed in several increments over the span of 10 years. It is on schedule and under budget.
