The technicians must know what to look for, and knowing what to look for takes 12 to 18 months of intensive training.

Images were not electronically stored, but remained available on the filed tenprint card. The technology and applications of AFIS systems are just beginning to emerge from initial development. One source of incorrect information, identity theft, is increasing as infor- mational databases are used and misused.

Some favor fingerprinting a large number of individuals, but not capturing all ten images. The entire process runs “instantly”. This is becoming an important issue, for as the amount of information collected on each person increases, the chances of collecting incorrect information also increase.

Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) – a short history

But they are still far from a ‘magic bullet’. There are also oppor- tunities for better, faster, and less expensive fingerprint identifications using AFIS systems. fjngerprint

This might result in a soldier in the field matching a mug shot with an enemy prisoner, or a military qutomated at headquarters matching finger images for a positive identification.


A major milestone occurred inwhen Dr. AFIS today is not just used in criminal applications. What affects the search is the clarity of the finger images and the clarity of the images in the database.

AFIS : a short history of biometrics and forensics ( update)

Prior to AFIS technology, latent print identificafion depended to a large degree on suspect and elimination prints. The system would identify anyone who had undergone the measurement process. Names also may change when used fingerpfint different languages.

The Automated Fingerprint Identification System does just that—it automates the identification process through the use of computers, or more characteristically, through digital images that can be coded and searched.

For example, if a person was fingerprinted for a job application for which the record was to be retained, the inked impressions were returned to the inquirer along with the search results.

It was the successful continuation of event series “Practise Day” by Paymentgroup International. An examiner skilled in the complex rules of fingerprint classification would look at the pattern using a reticule like the one pictured in Figure 1. Within another few minutes, the booking officer can send the images and arrest information to a state identification bureau.

Certainly some of its applications do require laboratories, but many others do not. This can result in unrealistic or misunderstood expectations of the success of the fjngerprint. This proved a great advancement, since this sharing of information required participating agencies to use common terms and to send messages in an agreed-upon format.


We help forensic examiners find answers fast Leveraging over 27 years of biometric experience from trusted industry leader, Cogent, Gemalto Cogent Automated Biometric Identification System CABIS provides the multi-biometric tool that identificatioon help examiners find answers quickly and efficiently.

For example, the tenprint file contains the images of only two fingers.

The need for increased and improved security has become both a national priority and an area of opportunity. There is no black or white, yes or no; there is only varying shades of gray, levels of probability. It is the intent of the author and contributors that readers of this book will be in a better position to effect those changes.

In addition to criminal history checks, the records from these identification bureaus would be used for crime scene investigations. The infusion of millions of federal dollars, primarily through the NCHIP, combined with a federal pres- ence in the development of standards for transmissions and image capture produced a strong formula for success. Each of these three elements is subject to error. The situation at the FBI, however, was not so rosy. Bythe FBI was reported to have over million records.

The introduction of fax machines greatly improved response time.
