Municipal ID cards should be designed, and programs implemented, in such a way as to prevent fraud and misuse. There are three main components to card security: card design, document authentication and penalties for fraud. One of the simplest ways to prevent fraud is by making the card difficult to counterfeit by including holograms or other tamperproof features. Second, staff should be well-trained in document review to authenticate documents. Finally, cities can implement penalties to deter fraud. Notably, there have been almost no instances of suspected fraud in any of the jurisdictions that currently run municipal ID card programs. When New York City released its first quarterly report to the City Council in March 2015, there were only two instances of possible fraud detected among more than 100,000 processed applications for the IDNYC.
