Police database unusable, fingerprints checked manually

Police lost its database on June 20 since the two face recognition and fingerprint identification programs became unusable because of technical problems, the verifications thus taking a lot longer since the suspects’ fingerprints have to be compared manually. HotNews informs.The Imagetrak and AFIS 2000 programs used by policemen to identify suspects became unusable on June 20 after a power system problem could not longer be remedied.According to Police representatives, a new power system has been bought and specialists are working on addressing the problems.In the absence of the two programs, policemen have to manually compare old files with the evidence they find at crime scenes, which renders the procedure more difficult. The Imagetrak program is the most complex database the Romanian Police has, containing data on all suspects registered at national level, namely height, weight, eye color, hair color and particular marks such as tattoos or scars. The program is generally used to identify unidentified persons and bodies. The AFIS 2000 program is a database that contains the fingerprints and photos of all persons who were fingerprinted.
