police using mobile fingerprints

I suspect we will see this more and more


Mobile fingerprinting technology has been hitting the headlines. West Yorkshire Police is trialling a new system whereby fingerprints can be taken on a mobile device and checked against its database in seconds. Civil rights group Liberty has, somewhat belatedly, condemned its use.

There is something missing from the coverage, however. This is old news. The technology was first announced in 2008. The Metropolitan Police in London has been using the new scanners since 2013. The only difference seems to be that they are now slightly faster and cheaper.
