How to process and manage cash seizures faster

JetScan iFX i100 i200 money counter law enforcement documents cash faster captures serial numbers

Count and document cash faster with money counters for law enforcement

Every day in the news, it seems, we hear about another drug overdose. It's an epidemic affecting the entire country. The rich and famous aren't immune to it, nor are our friends and neighbors. According to the CDC, more than 72,000 deaths were linked to drug overdoses last year. More than 30,000 of those were directly linked to fentanyl and synthetic opioids. It's heartbreaking, and preventable. That's why law enforcement efforts to combat this epidemic are critical.

One issue law enforcement grapples with is quick, reliable information sharing and management. Real-time info is crucial, there is a real need for speed, but even in this age of "there's an app for everything," many law enforcement agencies are saddled with old technology that slows everything down.

Seized cash must be scanned, copied and logged, which takes time, and in large, multi-jurisdiction cases, departments have to share that information with other departments and agencies. It's slow, inaccurate and inefficient.

That's why the engineers at Cummins Allison designed the JetScan iFX i100 and i200 money counters with law enforcement in mind. The idea was to eliminate those problems and roadblocks. The machines process bills at 1,200 per minute, and capture the image and serial number in one pass. They sort the bills by denomination and give a breakdown of what's what.

But that's only part of the story. The numbers and images migrate to the image management software and can easily be turned into PDF files that can, in turn, be emailed to other departments and agencies.

It's all designed to save time and increase efficiency and accuracy, which allows detectives to get back to doing what they do best — catching the bad guys.
