Handheld ID Scanner

Ontario County purchasing handheld ID scanners

Ontario County, NY has decided to move forward with appropriating funds to purchase handheld ID scanners to catch underage drinkers.  According to Sue Cirencione – the new Ontario County Stop DWI program administrator – Ontario county will seek grant money to pay for two handheld ID scanners.

After noticing how difficult police were struggling with identifying fake IDs, Cirencione decided that the county needs to invest in ID scanners to help curb the amount of DUIs and DWIs in the area.  Handheld ID readers will also help speed up the line when entering the concert venue.  Cirencione said the scanners will not only be used at venues like CMAC, but also in county bars and carnivals.
