King Cty [WA] usingPolice Using Portable Fingerprint Scanners If You Look Suspicious

c/o Govt. Slaves c/o Seattle Times

"Even in the increasingly computer-reliant field of law enforcement, the MorphoIDent portable fingerprint scanner is being hailed as “the next step in helping to fight crime” by King County Sheriff Steve Strachan. The device allows cops in the field to take two images of a suspect’s fingerprints, which are transmitted, via Bluetooth, to the deputy’s in-car computer, where they are then run through King County’s Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), a database of more than 700,000 prints taken in the county."
