Mississippi Updates IDs & Enhances Issuing Process.
The Mississippi Department of Public Safety announced that it is now issuing newly designed driver’s licenses and state ID cards. This is the largest change in the department’s history. The transition started 5 years ago and is supposed to come to full completion at the end of this year.
The Mississippi DPS decided to do this as a security measure. Like many other states that have recently implemented this sort of change, the goal is to protect its citizens against identity theft and prevent counterfeiting.

DPS’s changes go beyond the design of the ID. The department has developed kiosks to expedite ID issuing services to Mississippi residents. According to Public Safety Commissioner Alberta Santa Cruz, “We are pleased to announce the roll-out of our new upgraded kiosks and online services geared at making transactions with the Department of Public Safety more efficient.”
