Age ID, a fake ID scanning app, is being utilized by the Greenville Police Department (GPD), Alcoholic Law Enforcement (ALE) and Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to test the accuracy of the app, according to a news report.
The Age ID app is used to identify fake or questionable IDs, by scanning the barcode of the ID and by notifying the police officer if th ID is fake, questionable or real.
Local ALE and ABC officers also have access to the Age ID app, in addition to some of the members of the GDP. East Carolina University's Police Department are considering using the app, but are still considering the cost and effectiveness.
Fake IDs are a threat to the people who possess them and pose a threat on innocent people whose information is being used fraudulently, according to the report.
