Paper Abstract

Over the last decade many criminal justice agencies have replaced their fingerprint card based systems with electronic processing. We examine these new systems and find that image acquisition to support the identification application is consistently a challenge. Image capture and compression are widely dispersed and relatively new technologies within criminal justice information systems. Image quality assurance programs are just beginning to mature.
