Visiphor Announces King County RAIN Phase II Completion

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 8, 2007 -- Visiphor Corporation ("Visiphor") (OTCBB: VISRF) (TSX-V: VIS) (XETRA: IGYA) announced today that it has successfully completed phase II of the King County Regional Automated Information Network (RAIN). With this next step completed, Investigators in King County are now able to take advantage of enhanced searching capability and mapping of crime data.

Visiphor's initial project with King County established RAIN, allowing law enforcement personnel to access criminal activity data in real time from any participating law enforcement agency within the network. As a result, information captured by any agency within RAIN becomes immediately available to all officers in the region. Combining such cross-jurisdictional data sharing capabilities with the recent addition of Visiphor's impressive crime analytics tools, King County law enforcement officials are better able to achieve a higher and more cost-effective level of fighting crime.

Moving forward, Visiphor and King County will continue to build RAIN by including King County Jail mugshots to enhance the facial recognition capabilities already contained within RAIN. Also, as part of RAIN Phase II, Visiphor completed a project to expand contribution of RAIN data from an additional 14 RAIN agencies to the highly publicized U.S. Navy LInX network.

"Since the tragedy of September 11th, police chiefs and the sheriff of King County have made information sharing a top priority," reported Chief Denise Turner, Chair of the RAIN Governance Committee. "Through mutual commitment and an extraordinary partnership with Visiphor, we have been able to build an impressive system that helps the patrol officer and detective more efficiently investigate and solve crime, and detect criminal activity patterns that aid in crime/terrorism prevention strategies. RAIN is the first real-time, computer-based tool that police have had available to them; we continue to see results every day with RAIN and LInX."

Oliver "Buck" Revell Visiphor's Chairman and former Associate Director of the FBI adds, "The rapidity with which these new features have been added to RAIN underlines the value of Visiphor's technology to the justice serving community. This system has become a showcase example for a federated solution to the problem connectioning data from disparate law enforcement systems."
