U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Paso Del Norte (PDN) international crossing in El Paso have initiated work on a system which CBP says will result in more efficient processing of arriving pedestrian traffic.

The pilot project uses fingerprints to expedite the pedestrian entry process. It is expected to launch later this year.

“This system provides CBP a higher confidence level in identifying the traveler through enhanced biometrics,” said Hector Mancha, CBP El Paso port director. “There are many benefits to be realized including more efficient processing because we are eliminating manual data entry.”
