For law enforcement, fingerprints and other evidence found at crime scenes are critical in helping to pinpoint crime suspects.
According to a recent news release
, the solution helped catch a burglar who left a palm print at the crime scene. When later picked up on marijuana charges, the suspect's palm was found to match the databases print for the suspect in the burglary, and they were able to make an arrest.
's Printrak BIS improves the matching of fingerprint and palm print scans -- for faster verification and as a way to more quickly seize offenders including identification of those with a prior record. Whenever a new entry is submitted, the system performs a back-check for all past unmatched records.
The ability to automatically process criminal and applicant submissions and the use of electronic fingerprints also offers an accurate and timely solution for providing print submissions to the FBI.
Motorola's Printrak BIS solution saves not only time, but provides law enforcement personnel with the ability to concentrate on other necessary tasks.
Among key features of the system, including use in Automatic Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) records and crime scene photography, customized automation is also possible with the "lights out" features.
"Beyond the efficiencies created by the 'lights out' features, Motorola's Printrak BIS provides for the storage of more than just biometrics. It fully integrates fingerprints and palmprints, descriptive data, facial images, signatures, and documents, giving SLED the ability to better organize information making their AFIS investment more valuable, "said Darrin Reilly, general manager, Motorola Biometrics Unit in a statement to the press.
