Fake ID Detection for Law Enforcement


Officers are protected when they know the ID they’re looking at is valid, that the person is who they say they are. For more than 50 years, our references have been assisting officers in making vehicle stops and impoundments, and while on patrol with counterfeit ID detection. Our printed Guides offer compact size and portability, and their low cost makes them ideal for protecting every officer. Our online references offer sophisticated ID checking and fake ID detection at any location—including mobile access.

  • Easy to use
  • Quick reference
  • Low cost
  • Training

Our ID resources are reliable, as proven by their use at DMVs (issuers of state IDs), the FBI, and many law enforcement FTO programs. Our references aid highway patrols, police, sheriffs, airport police, state patrols, and more. From police field ID checks, to desk locations, to mobile units, we can offer the worldwide ID coverage to protect your operations through counterfeit ID detection.


Take advantage of this tested low-cost protection. More than 40,000 police law enforcement locations count on our references for identity check, in print and online.
