Latest technology helps police fight crime

Police in the Chifley Local Area Command are using new portable finger print scanners to identify criminals who have committed multiple offences.

The scanners are being used by police in the field where they can scan the thumbprint of a criminal and cross reference the image with the National Automated Fingerprint Identification System database, which contains 4 million records from every state jurisdiction.

The police receive results via 3G wireless technology within 90 seconds of accessing the database.

The new technology allows police to link offenders to unsolved warrants and crimes, as well as identify those who may have breached bail or provided a fake name and address.
