Hi all, Anyone here in Melbourne knows how to get fingerprint impression document?? I have asked Victorian Police and AFP Melbourne, they do provide the service but the needs to be booked. And the earliest would be in the month of November :wacko: Can't believe this, i thought it is just an ink fingerprint stamp, a task that can be done in 5 minutes... I urgently need this for Certificate of Clearance from Singapore Police. And my CO only gave me 28 days to provide the document he needs. It's very impractical for to fly to singapore just to get my fingerprint scanned :arghh:
VICTORIAN police could soon be armed with world-first CSI-style fingerprint scanners that can identify a criminal within 70 seconds. Cops on the beat can use the hand-held analyser to process the fingerprints of anyone they have arrested. Victoria Police is aware of and interested in the portable analysers already in use in NSW. "The science and technology unit at Victoria Police is monitoring them with interest," acting Sgt Adam West said yesterday. The mobile identification device sends fingerprints via a secure mobile phone channel to a national database where they're matched. Within 70 seconds police know if the suspect has a criminal history. The portable scanner can also receive any warnings or existing photographs of the detained person to save valuable time at a crime scene. More than 20,000 offenders are identified each year by their unique fingerprint signature. The scanners are linked to a a new national database operated by the federal policing agency, CrimTrac. The Victorian Council of Civil Liberties said it had no objection to the scanner as long as they were used within current legal guidelines. Herald Sun
