Agartala: The Crime Investigation
Department (CID) of Tripura police would launch an Automated
Finger Print Identification System (AFPIS) for storing the
data base of the criminals, official sources said Thursday.
"This unique system (AFPIS) can store, detect and
analyse the detailed database of miscreants, convicts and
undertrial prisoners automatically in a computerised device,"
DIG (Police Control), Nepal Das said.
It can supply information on suspects by tallying the
finger-marks in the stored database along with other
behavioral attributes within a short time, he said.
AFPIS, if interconnected with online system it would
be able to provide information about any person subjected to
the process of identification from any part of the state.
If a case is filed against anyone the system would be
able to provide information if the person was arrested
The system is operated by comparing the finger print
of any unidentified person which is termed as `chance finger
print` with stored finger-marks of suspected criminals or
formerly arrested persons and the system could even take
suspected finger prints automatically, which makes the ongoing
investigation easier, Das added.
