The Digital Automotive Image System (DAIS) is an investigative forensic program of automotive images and associated technical specifications of vehicles over the last twenty plus years. The system provides law enforcement personnel with a means of searching a database of vehicles to find a particular car or cars and print a high quality 8x10 image of a particular vehicle, including multiple views (driver, passenger, front, rear) or quickly create a customized be-on-the-lookout (BOLO) poster. The database can be searched by:

  • Year
  • Make
  • Model
  • Class/type
  • Door number
  • Features
  • Any combination of the above

The program has been delivered to more than 19,000 law enforcement offices throughout the United States and Canada. DAIS has been successfully used to assist in the investigations of bank robberies, child abductions, missing persons cases, and a number of other crimes.

Periodic updates are provided to law enforcement to keep up with new model years.
