The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association has negotiated a contract with Identix to maintain your Morphotrust Live scan equipment, purchased through the Pa. Chiefs, at a substantial savings over the direct retail purchase from Morphotrust. PCPA is offering the 9/5 service plan at an annual cost of $4,479 and 24/7 coverage at an annual cost of $4,524. Preventive maintenance visits can also be purchased at reduced costs. The annual CPIN maintenance cost is $3,675 and now includes a five year automatic hardware upgrade program.
Similar savings can be obtained on the purchase of a livescan fingerprint system and a CPIN mugshot system. We are able to receive these volume discount prices because we use the power of numbers in our negotiations with the vendors. In this case the numbers are the membership of the PA Chiefs of Police Association. For example, the single purchase price of a full hand livescan on state DGS contract is over $6,000 more than the PA Chiefs volume purchase price. And the annual livescan maintenance pricing is about $3,000 less on the PA Chiefs volume plan. On a statewide basis, this represents a total livescan maintenance cost savings of about $370,000 per year for local agencies!
In addition to the cost savings on the central booking equipment purchases and maintenance, the Central Booking program also provides consultation, on site surveys, quarterly user group meetings, and training, all at no cost, to any non state agency in Pennsylvania. This covers anything related to establishing and maintaining a central booking site. Forms and documents needed to develop a regional or countywide central booking plan are also available through this program and on the PA Chiefs members only side of this web site.
If you purchased your Morphotrust livescan and/or DataWorksPlus CPIN system through The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association and are not already on these discount plans, please contact Jerry Miller, Offender ID Technology Coordinator, at PCPA Headquarters at phone 717-236-1059 or email: email@example.com to apply for these programs or to request information on anything related to central booking.
You must be able to make payment to the The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association by the end of January each year to be on the maintenance program.
PCPA is a non-profit organization and makes no profit from these programs.
