fingerprintsThe Daly City Police Department is currently using LiveScan, an inkless electronic fingerprinting, which is electronically transmitted to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for completion of a criminal record check. The Live Scan technology replaces the process of recording an individual's fingerprint patterns through a rolling process using ink. Digitizing the fingerprint minutiae (the characteristics that make fingerprints unique) enables the electronic transfer of the fingerprint image data in combination with personal descriptor information to central computers at the DOJ in a matter of seconds.
