Though mobile fingerprint technology has been in use in law enforcement for nearly a decade, continued enhancements are making the technology viable for agencies of all sizes.
Currently, biometric systems are being used every day by officers in two distinct missions: security and identification. And they can be very useful.
As the responding patrol officer it’s your job to properly process the crime scene, including locating, printing, collecting, and documenting all fingerprint evidence on scene — not necessarily an easy task.
Technological advances in instrumentation and equipment let law enforcement continually rethink what is possible when collecting forensic evidence. Utilizing new products and technologies often allows more evidence to be located, identified, and collected.
