'Fast ID' system would mean quicker bookings; Wisconsin police adopt biometrics system

By Heather Asiyanbi
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Mount Pleasant, Wisc. Criminals who think that they can slip through the cracks of law enforcement by giving false names and addresses when they''re arrested will have to think again.

Thanks to a $2,000 grant awarded by the state Department of Justice to the Mount Pleasant Police Department, a new "Fast ID" automated fingerprint identification system device has become part of the regular booking process, according to Lt. Tom Petersen.

The device uses biometric technology to encode the prints off two fingers of a suspect, sends the prints to the state Department of Justice and waits to see if the prints belong to someone matching a state identification number.
