OTTAWA, April 19, 2005 - BlueBear Network International, Inc (OTC.PK: BLBR) announced today it has reached an agreement to incorporate the East-Shore Technologies' Automated Fingerprint Information Systems (AFIS) into BlueBear's distributed biometric information sharing software Integrated Digital Law Enforcement (IDLE).

"In combining the two biometric technologies, law enforcement agencies can dramatically improve the chances of identifying suspects,''says Andrew Brewin, President and CEO of BlueBear Network International. ``Our technology integrates the advanced fingerprint capabilities of East-Shore's AFIS with proven face recognition and information sharing.''

IDLE allows individual Police Services to maintain control of their own biometric databases while allowing them to share information with other authorized agencies that are part of the BlueBear network. Governments and law enforcement agencies throughout the world recognize that they need to share information in order to improve the safety and security of our neighborhoods. ``IDLE is the only cost effective technology available today built specifically to deliver that functionality,'' says Mr. Brewin.

"IDLE provides tremendous potential for extending fingerprint searches to allow instantaneous searches of multiple biometric databases around the world,''stated Mr. Stephen Ferris, CEO of East-Shore Technologies.``We look forward to being an integral part of this revolutionary technology.''
